    Carver Youth Matinee: Ile Bahia Capoeira

    Capoeira, brought to Brazil by African slaves, is a unique art form that combines elements of martial arts, dance and acrobatics performed to the background of Brazilian instruments and music. Students will not only be thrilled by the agility, precision and power of the dancers and movements, but will also explore the rich historical significance of the 500 year old art form. Recommended for all ages. In this beautiful interactive performance, audiences of all ages learn about India with the telling of traditional stories through live music and dance. Ms Naimpally, appearing in colorful costume explains the origins of the dance and continues with hand gestures, rhythms, customs, and language. Audience members participate by clapping out beats, creating scenes through hand symbols, and speaking key words from the stories. Each unique musical instrument is introduced and demonstrated to show how they create their distinct sound. Experience India through its delightful stories, music, and movement!
