Event description

Description

Want to enjoy the iconic Central Harbour Front view and exercise for free? Then join this Capoeira class at AIA Vitality Park to enjoy a unique workout experience!


Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form created over 400 years ago as means of self-defence. It incorporates elements of music, dance, acrobatics and martial arts. It is a whole-body workout for all ages that is fun, dynamic and inspiring.


The benefits of capoeira for both adults and children are part of its great appeal. Capoeira teaches self-confidence, a sense of community and introduces a fascinating new culture as well as builds fitness, strength and flexibility.
