Capoeira Resistência

Capoeira Resistência was founded with the goal of sharing the art of capoeira with the community. We believe that capoeira is about making friends and stimulating personal development. Our philosophy centers on caring about the well being of others, which results in close friendships and a strong community.

More than producing great capoeiristas, we teach the core values of capoeira: mutual respect, playfulness, and control over the body and mind. We believe these values enable our students to achieve and excel in all aspects of life. Our academy encourages physical, social, and mental empowerment by offering a learning environment where people of all ages and origins can come together to be creative and challenge themselves. Through practice of movement, balance, and rhythm, as well as culture, history, language and music, Capoeira Resistência advocates the principles of respect, self-confidence, physical and mental stamina within individuals.

Capoeira Resistência Charlottesville provides an ongoing, beginner friendly kid's and adult's class. Our capoeira classes are taught Mondays inside IX Art Park and Thursdays at The Dance Spot's 3rd floor studio, and are open to all levels of physical capabilities.

Kid's class is 4:30-5:30pm and Adult's class is 5:30-6:30pm. The tuition for kid's and adult's classes is $80 a month or a $12 per class drop in fee.
