This is Capoeira! It is a Brazilian Martial Art and dance. The slaves marooned on the shores of Brasil from Africa developed the art, disguising it as a dance but secretly using it to train and improve fighting skills to one day free themselves from their masters. We began learning Capoeira as we traveled in South America and found it to be really cool. There are so many different movements and acrobats involved in it. We are so stiff and resticted in our dancing styles (see this gallery for more about our presentation: Dancing Across The World).In the same way we use this dance to learn to be free ourselves and express our hearts toward the Living God and to worship Him. We are honored to be Capoeirists. The music, dance, singing, and playing are a beautiful expression of ones individual creativity.
