Description

Did you know that over 90% of communication is non-verbal? Through the Capoeira Speaks residency, students will strengthen non-verbal skills through the body language of the African-Brazilian martial arts called Capoeira Angola.  Capoeira Speaks is well-suited for inclusive settings and those with behavioral, social, emotional and/or physical disabilities.
