Classes take place every Wednesday in the lobby of the Caltech Center for Student Services. Everybody is welcome to join the class, including kids (5 years old or more). It is important to wear comfortable cloths (t-shirt and pants are preferable).
The class is divided in two part, the first part (30min) is stretches to warm up the body, and the second part (30min) is to learn and practice capoeira movements.
