Discover the exciting Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira! Local martial arts group Capoeira St. Louis will give an all-ages, all-skill-levels demonstration and workshop beginning at 7 pm, Monday, February 12, 2017, at The Heights: Richmond Heights Community Center and Memorial Library, 8001 Dale Avenue, Richmond Heights, MO.

The energetic, graceful martial art of capoeira was developed in 16th century Brazil and incorporates kicks, acrobatics, and dance elements set to music. Combatants are called “players;” instead of fighting, participants tag each other in to “play” the free-flowing game of capoeira.

The public is invited to this unique demonstration and workshop. No experience is necessary! No registration required! Come one come all! The evening will begin with stories “funny and real” from master storyteller Loretta Washington.
