Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art and cultural expression with a complex history. It has roots in the African traditions brought to Brazil by enslaved people during the colonial era. Evolving in secret as a form of self-defense and cultural preservation, capoeira eventually developed into a unique blend of martial arts, dance, and music. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was outlawed in Brazil, but practitioners continued to keep it alive clandestinely. In the 20th century, capoeira underwent a revival and was legalized, becoming an important aspect of Brazilian culture. Today, it is celebrated as both an art form and a martial discipline, with a rich history of resistance, resilience, and cultural fusion. It even became a Patrimony of Brazilian Culture after all!

That is why we are here to invite you to have fun experiencing capoeira while learning Portuguese in this special combination with each one of our Portuguese courses in Rio de Janeiro + Capoeira Classes. RioLIVE! activities also included, which allow you to “live” the city and its culture.

Why should I participate in Capoeira and Portuguese Classes at Rio & Learn?

During your capoeira weeks, you’ll be immersed in the capoeira culture, and learn about its history and importance in Brazil. You’ll be surrounded by different musical instruments, and you’ll be able to learn how to play them too! Nice, right? You’ll move your body, learn a new sport, learn how to play instruments and sing in Portuguese as well! Singing the main songs of capoeira, is a essential part of this sport because it stimulates, awakens and transmits energy to participants connecting them to the emotional expression of the sport.
