Capoeira is a Brazilian martial arts which combines martial arts, dance, and cultural music.
Located in the West Quad Dance Studio, the ABADA-Capoeira Club meets every Tuesday and Thursday during common hours. Students learn various moves such as queixada and rasteira. They also learn how to play traditional musical instruments and sing Brazilian songs.
