The Year 12 Dance learners were extremely fortunate to have a visit from guest Capoeira tutor, Jeremy Warne, this term. Jeremy is from Capoeira Mandinga Aotearoa, who are based in Auckland. He trains in Capoeira Angola, a traditional form of the Brazilian artistic expression, which traces its roots back to the African people brought to Brazil in the times of colonialism. The Year 12’s spent five hours learning the very basics of this art form, in preparation for an internal assessment they will be sitting this term.
It was wonderful to have such an enthusiastic and inspirational member of the Capoeira community work with the learners and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the time they had together.
