What's Included

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. It was created in Brazil mainly by descendants of African slaves with Brazilian native influences. It is known by quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for leg sweeps. Students work on physical coordination, group awareness, and communication. Students are recommended ( but not required) to take both the Monday and Thursday classes to get the most out of this program. Important Notice from UCAL: At the end of your registration process through the Active system, you will be offered a 30-day free trial of something called the Active Advantage program. You do NOT need to register with Active Advantage to receive member discounts for UCAL programs ,and we do not recommend signing up for it. At the end of the 30-day trial your credit card will be charged an annual fee of $64.95. To avoid being unnecessarily charged, please do NOT register for the Active Advantage program. Due to an increase in charges from our online service the University City Arts League is now charging a $4.72 registration fee when you pay with a credit card using our online system. Customers not wishing to pay this fee can fill out a paper registration form in the office and pay by cash or check. Families with a financial need can contact the office to have their registration fees waived. These fees will not apply to scholarship students.
