Artist in Residence with Fua Nascimento - Capoiera

For 5 days spread between two weeks, we will be having an Artist-in-Residence come to share their gift with us. At the end of the two weeks, friends and family will be treated to a presentation of what the children have learned. We will welcome Fua Nascimento to share with us the experience of Capoeira.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, movements, music, and meditation. Capoeira is a great exercise for all ages and increases fitness and strength throughout the body and mind it is great for brain stimulation and stress reduction. Capoeira will challenge the body and mind and it will improve temperament, reflexes, and coordination but will do so in a fun and enjoyable way.
