Capoeira for Healthy Children
On 20 May, Capoeira Bem-Vindo was invited to participate in a Healthy Living Event in a primary school in Walthamstow. It is the first time we've played amidst 'healthy cakes' and 'racing vegetable' stalls. It was really fun engaging children – aged from about 4 to 10 – in cartwheels, handstands and some little capoeira steps – and it's impressive what they pick up just from watching their mates and listening to the music. There was a lot of interest from the parents too, and several mums were up for trying out a some basic moves. We even had early summer sunshine, too!
Feel free to get in touch if you're interested in having us run a workshop at your school.
