Fall 2011 Training Times
Fall training begins August 15.
Monday 8:00-10:00 pm Wednesday 8:00-10:00 pm
Fall training is in the Ramsey Center, Studio B
Try it out! Who can participate?
Anyone in the UGA community can be a part of capoeira. Some people in the wider community also train with us but because we train at UGA's fitness center for part of the year this poses some challenges. We are considering other practice spaces so if you are a capoerista in Athens send an email and let us know.
Can I just drop in?
Sure! Just come and introduce yourself. There is no one time of year to start, at every class people of different levels are learning together and we have new people start all through the semester.
What do I wear?
Workout pants and a t-shirt are best . If you decide you want to stick with it, you can get your uniform (white abadas pants and t-shirt) from the club.
Is it expensive?
No. Club dues vary by semester but they have been around $50 per semester.
Music? Do I have to play music?
Music is a big part of the game of capoeira, the rhythm of the music dictates how the game is played. We all play and sing, but most of us didn't have any experience playing until we started capoeira. And barely any of us are good singers.
How do I say the word capoeira?
It is pronounced cap-o-EH-rah.
