Putting what they learned into performance

Capoeira is a Brazilian Martial art that combines music, dance, fight, rythm and improvisation. Capoeira is a dialog between players – a conversation through movement which can take on many shades of meaning.

This art is used to empower youth all over the world. It is indeed an excellent game to keep children active while allowing them to direct their energy in a structured activity where they learn respect, coordination and patience. To be able to play capoeira one needs to maintain a good physical health, accept slow achievement and limits as well as contently improve his communication skills. Moreover, all capoeira players learn music and sing.

The improvised aspect of the game, makes an excellent platform to stimulate creativity, foster confidence and sharpen speed of thinking and reacting (making the right association of movements, taking the right decision).

Furthermore, capoeira helps people express themselves and foster their own identity. A capoeira player develops his own style and needs to discover his own way of playing and interacting with others.

The children at a syrian dream are in love with capoeira. They take the classes very seriously and always train on their own and help each other to achieve the next level together.
