Capoeira Angola is like two snakes fighting
One is Africa and the other is Brasil
Capoeira Angola is many things all at once.
It can be a person's way of defending themselves, a way to preserve Afro-Brazilian culture,
a great way to exercise, a way to connect with one's community, and a way to entertain oneself.
This African-Brazilian folk art combines playful sparring,
music, dance, ritual and philosophy into a unique game thatís
dangerous, yet beautiful. Some of the roots of Capoeira can
be traced back to the Nígolo, an acrobatic challenge dance
from the southwest of Africa that imitates the movements of
zebras. Itís influences have spread into the realms of break
dancing, hip hop, jazz, modern dance as well as many other
Our club is open to CU students, faculty, staff and the general
public as well. Beginners and newcomers are welcome to try a
session at any time of the school year, you don't need to start
at the beginning of the semester.
Our group will not be meeting during
the Winter/Spring semester of 2013.
