Project Description: Approximately 50 children between the ages of 5 and 17 took part at the Capoeira training provided by the instructors of Grupo Cativeiro Capoeira – Jamaica. Students highly anticipated the classes and obviously considered Capoeira to be an exiting and fun part of the summer camp. Percussion classes and also a nutrition awareness workshop were part of the training and were well received. On the final event various instructors and students of other communities joined the participants for a big ‘Roda’ (circle in which Capoeira is performed).
