Sinha Capoeira

Sinha Capoeira is a full-time Capoeira school based in Somerville, led by its founder and artistic director Mestre Chuvisquinho, a capoeirista with 40+ years of experience in the art. Their school is dedicated to the growth and development of the Afro-Brazilian martial art of Capoeira, which combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music to create a dynamic and exhilarating art form.

During a Capoeira performance, they engage in a "game" called jogo de capoeira, which involves two players performing against each other in a mock fight-dance. It is an exciting and entertaining display of athleticism, music, and culture, and is a unique martial art that continues to be popular around the world. Accompanied by their own live music, African drumming, singing, and clapping!
