Norwood’s first Capoeira performance!

14 January 2013

It was lovely to see them all having such a good time and focusing so well on what they have learnt over the weeks.

Unity and In-Betweeners recently completed a six week Capoeira project called New Wave, funded by Starbucks and run by a Unity member of staff, Maya Walters, in collaboration with Casa De Caboelo, a Capoeira Academy.

On Sunday 16 December the project came to a close with a performance to parents at The Capoeira Academy in Bethnal Green, by 5 young people from the group.

Capoeira is a combination of dance and martial arts. Jessica, one of the young people said: "The sessions were fun, and the exercise helps us keep very fit."

One of the parents also said: "It was lovely to see them all having such a good time and focusing so well on what they have learnt over the weeks."
