A Capoeira Angola workout class will be taking place at the Bowling and Billiards Center Activity Room from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22. 

The dress code includes long workout pants, t-shirts that can be tucked in and tennis or gym shoes.  

This physical workout class is free and open to beginners, first-timers and all levels. 

Attendees can expect to learn Capoeira Angola movements and Capoeira music with practice on traditional music instruments.  

These combine fluid, dance-like movements with kicks, head butts, tripping sweeps and the appearance of playfulness or vulnerability.  

Capoeira Angola is an Afro-Brazilian art style that comprises folkloric traditions, oral history, dance and song into a martial art.  

The art is said to be a unique and uplifting cultural experience that provides beauty and power, balance and physical condition, dance, music, language, art and self-defense.
