Under the guidance of professor Muito Tempo, Capoeira Batuque Pasadena initiates children and adults into the rhythms of the venerable Afro-Brazilian tradition. Like Spock and Kirk forced to fight by a threatening tribunal of bearded men, two players dance around each other in the center of a circle, exchanging movements of attack and defense in a constant, heart-pumping flow. Classes of up to 20 martial artists slip into capoeira’s unique interweaving of music, acrobatics, dance, and martial movements, getting into shape in a fun group setting. The agile maneuvers and quick tempo keep students engaged while honing bodies until they’re as strong and flexible as a gymnast on Venus. Classes currently run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, though more classes may be added to accommodate Groupon capoeiristas.
Capoeira Batuque Pasadena
Helmed by professor and capoeira expert Muito Tempo, Capoeira Batuque Pasadena fills with the rhythms that drive the fast-paced sport. In group classes, instructors introduce the fundamentals of capoeira, which fuses the moves of martial arts, the rhythmic and collaborative elements of dance, and the circular formation of Duck, Duck, Goose into a vibrant and aerobic form of exercise. Classes consist of two participants dancing around each other in the middle of the circle, exchanging movements of attack and defense in a frenzied but controlled flow. The classes maintain their lively pace by fueling the acrobatic movements with music heavy in complex, quick polyrhythms played on a range of traditional percussion instruments.
