Axe Capoeira

MLCA has teamed up with Axé Society for Capoeria to offer a fantastic new Brazilian Martial Arts program!

There are many questions about what Capoeira is. It is at the same time a sport, a game and a dance. At its purest level, capoeira is a conversation between two bodies in motion and it truly is a sight to behold.

Axé Society for Capoeira (Axé Capoeira Calgary) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the celebration of Brazilian culture through Capoeira, Afro-Brazilian dance and percussion. It is our mission to foster CULTURE, COMMUNITY AND CONFIDENCE.

Proudly we have been active in Calgary and surrounding areas since 2005 offering Capoeira, dance and music classes, performing in festivals, as well as working with Calgary Board of Education, Calgary Catholic School District and Rocky View School Division. We continue to stand by our commitment to providing accessible programming and serving our community remains a top priority.

It is our belief that capoeira is for everyone and the benefits are essential in the quest for healthy living. Strength, stamina, agility, flexibility, balance, language and expression of the body and mind as well as stress reduction are just some of the ways one can expect noticeable changes take place.
