Capoeira Dancers

capoeira for teambuilding 1

Capoeira is a Brazilian art form involving movement, music and elements of philosophy. At the heart of the discipline is ritualized combat ‘played’ as a game. During the game two players (capoeiristas) exchange movements of attack and defence in a constant stream, like a conversation. It is important that they observe the rituals and proper manners of the art. The players both attempt to control the space and the game by confusing the other with feints and deceptive moves.

Capoeira is great for a team-building exercise. It makes coworkers work together, builds confidence and a sense of leadership.
