CAPOEIRA – Marcos Fernandes
Tuesdays: 6pm-8pm
Thursday: 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Saturday: 12pm – 1:30pm

“The beauty of Capoeira is that one never knows when the game will turn into a dance, when the dance will turn into a fight or when the fight will turn into a game. Capoeira is none of these things individually but all of these things together.” We welcome any person who wishes to “play the game”.

Marcos has a degree in Physical Education from Brazil. He first began teaching Capoeira in Cambridge, England, and has been teaching in Seattle since September 2004.

Open to all levels.
