What's Included

Wouldn't it be great if you could learn martial arts, dance, music, acrobatics, a new language, and aspects of Brazilian culture in just one activity? These multidisciplinary elements come together in capoeira, a truly unique activity that challenges and enriches its students on so many levels. Capoeira originated in Brazil in the 1500s by African slaves and it is now practiced throughout the world. In this class, partner and group work strengthen relationships among peers as well as with instructors. Students will excel with their classmates and beyond expectations. Note: The class is taught by a certified capoeira instructor from an organization called A.C.E., the ABADA-Capoeira Experience. Pelicano, as well as other instructors from A.C.E., have taught wonderful capoeira classes to eighth grade students as part of the Urban Outward Bound overnight trip experience. No class 2/16.

About This Organizer

For over 130 years the Ethical Culture Fieldston School has been committed to excellence in education as it seeks to develop the intellectual, artistic and moral potential of its students. ECFS serves approximately 1,700 students and 325 faculty and staff in our four divisions. Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, Fieldston Middle, and Fieldston upper. Ethical Culture is located in midtown Manhattan on Central Park West, in a six-story, turn-of-the-century school building; the other divisions share an 18-acre campus in the Riverdale Section of the Bronx.

Through an academic program that is demanding, rigorous, and through, we encrouage our students to challenge themselves in innovative ways, so they can reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit. We approach education in an interdisciplinary, experiential, and colaborative way, helping our students develop a lifelong passion for learning and understanding of its relevance beyond the classroom. As ethical learning provides the foundation of all that we do, we emphasize our students' moral development, and guide them towards service and social justice. The admirable successes of our graduates in a wide range of fields - from the arts to the sciences, from business to public service - and their contribution to society, attest to the promise of ECFS realized.
