Classes with Ithaca Capoeira Angola Quintal are...

  • Beginner-friendly

  • Inclusive & supportive

  • Great exercise

  • Culturally rich

  • Detailed & comprehensive

Each class begins with music and inspiration, moves into a warm-up and exercises to learn and condition ourselves for the basics of capoeira, and concludes with a core lesson for the day: practicing combinations of movements with a partner, learning more advanced/detailed movements, and playing games (jogos) of capoeira.

All ability levels are welcome. Our teachers and students are here to support; not to push anyone beyond their limit.

What to Expect:

  • We will be mindful of your time, beginning and ending class on schedule.

  • Our teachers and members will be welcoming and respectful.

  • Capoeira is a great workout-- you may wish to bring a water bottle and towel.

  • Workout-appropriate clothing will be a wise choice.

  • Please be prepared to go barefoot for class. Proper hygiene is appreciated by all.

  • We will move, participate in music, and have fun for the full duration of class.
