This group is to present Capoeira Batuque Dubai. This group lead by an instructor passionate in Capoeira made me fall in love (again) with this art and I would like to share my passion with you.

Capoeira is an Afro Brazilian martial art with elements of dance, music, acrobatics and philosophy that was developed by different African groups in Brazil. Capoeira is an art-form that challenges us to fight without fighting, play a game where there is often no clear winner and dance with someone who may be our enemy.
Capoeira was developed by African slaves and disguised as a dance. It was born not as a fighting style, but as a simple hope of survival. The dance was incorporated to avoid detection and corporal punishments. With music and rhythmic moves, they raised no suspicion of escape attempts.
Capoeira is considered a game "jogo" between two people. A dialogue, without words, that can be slow, fast, rough, beautiful, or any combination of these. An Art form commanded by music, history, and community.
More than anything Capoeira is fun and has grown from being an art form that was outlawed a hundred years ago to being declared a Cultural Heritage of Brazil and being practiced throughout the world. Today, Capoeira is the second most popular sport in Brazil behind football.
