Afro-Brazilian martial art classes for young or older children(4-12 years old) encouraging co-operation as well as fitness. The training involves preparing the muscles and joints for more intensive activity and stretching to improve flexibility. In ‘Capoeira Circle’ we work on rhythm, acrobatic movements, singing and playing instruments. Children can all work together to get fit and find respect for themselves and each other.
The sessions provide a fun and joyful musical approach through the combination of playing percussion, exploring body sounds (clapping, tapping, stamping) singing and moving. Children (3-6 years old) and parents or carers will be introduced to exotic Brazilian instruments and folk songs and rhythms. Young children will need to be accompanied by an adult.
TARU Arts – Over the past ten years we have been working with people of all ages and walks of life, running Brazilian Drumming workshops with special emphasis on the environment, sustainability and children(8 -10 years old) musical education.
