<![CDATA[Family Capoeira]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/07/27/family-capoeira http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/07/27/family-capoeira Date: July 27, 2016

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness, and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness, and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

Yet each share a musical equality that reflects on life's personal sentiments of loss, love, death, pain. and joy.

<![CDATA[Isadora Duncan Children’s Dance Class]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/08/09/isadora-duncan-childrens-dance-class http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/08/09/isadora-duncan-childrens-dance-class Date: August 9, 2016

Inspired by the natural movements of the human body, Isadora Duncan created a style of dance filled with joyful, rhythmical movements. These skipping, running, and leaping, free, lyrical, and expressive upper body movements make it a great activity for children.

Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather. Footwear should be flexible and easy to move in, such as ballet flats or comfortable sandals. This class is for children ages six to 11. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children during the class.

Company members of The Isadora Duncan Dance Company will lead these free public classes underwritten by the Fort Tryon Park Trust. Consistent participants will be invited to perform as part of the dance performance on August 20.

Please note: There is no class on Saturday, August 13 or Tuesday, August 16.

Rain or wet ground cancels. Check the Fort Tryon Park Trust Facebook Page for updates.

Registration is now open! Please email RSVP@FortTryonParkTrust.org to enroll your child today!

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness, and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness, and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.
