Well, we’re into September, and my oh my how quickly this Summer has flown! After a two week break, we’re proud to welcome back Wolverine and Capoeira Newport to The Project Space, this time with two session each week!

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that combines kicks, acrobatics, and music. Unless played professionally, Capoeira is widely practised as a non-contact sport. Rather than knocking down an opponent, the emphasis is on physical skill developing balance, strength and flexibility. Played to songs and instruments, music is integral to capoeira, setting the tempo and style of game played by all.

Capoeira is particularly great for dancers and is suitable for all ages and skill levels. For those new to Capoeira, or simply curious, pop in to one of the sessions and have a go yourself! Comfy clothing and sensible footwear advised.

MONDAYS (Children’s session Age 7 – 12) – 6pm – 7pm £4 per person

THURSDAYS (Adult Session Age 13+) 7pm – 8pm £4 per person
