" The Beautiful Art"

Capoeira, the Afro-Brazilian Martial Art/Dance

On October 6th, 2014 International Studies Students learnt about the Beautiful Art of Capoeira. It was held in Henderson Gymnasium.

Capoeira is a form of movement that incorporates martial arts and dance. It was originally practiced by African slaves in Brazil and has since become one of the most recognized elements of the Brazilian national identity. The rudiments of this "Beautiful Art" was taught by the renowned Mestre Doutor of the American Society of Capoeira and the Arts from Brazil.
