Capoeira Class with Mestre Silvinho

Sun, 11/24/2019 - 21:41
Capoeira Class with Mestre Silvinho

Mestre Silvio Aleixo Dos Reis has deidcated over thirty years of his life to learning and promoting Capoeira Angola. 

The Afro-Brazilian cultural art form Capoeira Angola is a fluid dance, a rhythmic martial art and an intergenerational community practice that emerged from the struggle of Africans who were enslaved and brought to Brasil. The ritual and music of Capoeira tell the history of Black people’s struggle to affirm their humanity, stories of personal liberation and the creation of resilient communities. Played in a circle (roda) the game (jogo) of Capoeira is an improvised combination of movements, acrobatics, rituals, and dance.

Repressed during slavery, Capoeira continued to be outlawed even after abolition, so it was practiced in secret; it only became legal in the 1930's. It survives because of the wisdom and dedication of a handful of masters (mestres) and their devoted students.

Practicing Capoeira means learning Portuguese, playing a variety of percussion instruments, developing physical fitness, flexibility, and endurance, as well as sharpening reflexes, and challenging yourself to overcome both your own perceived limitations and the prejudice that we inherit from society. Ultimately, Capoeira offers a window with which to engage critically with the world as a part of a community.

Learning from Mestre Silvinho is a great opportunity! Everyone welcome! No experience necessary!

From Tuesday, November 26, 2019 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM PST at Viking Union Multipurpose Room.
