Experience Capoeira with Lee-Sean "Macarrão" Huang


TAP-NY member Lee-Sean Huang, known by his nickname "Macarrão" (Noodle) in the capoeira world, will teach a special one-hour introduction to capoeira on Sunday, April 24 from 4-5 pm at the New York Capoeira Center in the Lower East Side.

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art disguised as a dance. Influenced by a blend of martial arts and dances from diverse African cultures, capoeira was practiced as a hidden, playful game to fool the slave owners. Join us for an hour of fun, fitness, and an introduction to Afro-Brazilian culture. We will learn some of the basic movements, kicks, and acrobatics of capoeira, and practice our new moves with partners. No previous dance or martial arts experience is necessary. All are welcome.
