About Me

I am the US representative of the Brazilian Association of Capoeira Sol Nascente. I have been in the fitness and Martial Arts industry for over 3 decades. My method of teaching Capoeira provides the learner with fitness, body identification, and fun without stress. We explore the art from the perspective of the person in mind. Knowing an individuals limitations give me the ability to address skill level and help a person increase in confidence in learning new movements and combating complacence of just doing the minimal. Guaranteed you will be pushed but only to a level that your body accepts. Our workouts are demanding but the ONLY way to develop in fitness and in health is to receive that extra push. I speak fluent Portuguese and Spanish, but English is my first language. With me you will get a true workout, gain a new social connection, and have fun. The fountain of youth is in Capoeira

A TRUE MIXED MARTIAL ART PROGRAM

Capoeira is a martial art hidden in dance, music, and superior body development of balance, strength, stamina, and reaction that rivals cross fit workouts and martial art programs. It has been proven that some MMA fighter utilize Capoeira to enhance their speed, reaction, and pinpoint accuracy as well as other professional athletes and fitness enthusiast use Capoeira for their cross training

CORE FITNESS AND CROSS TRAINING

Imagine a pilates, yoga, gymnastics, and cross fit class mixed with a intense martial art and you get
a total body workout in every session working every body part without even noticing

THE MOST FUN KIDS PROGRAM ON THE JERSEY SHORE

Capoeira provides children with a means of self-expression. In many Brazilian schools it is a compulsory discipline, which develops students not only physically but also intellectually, working both body and mind. Capoeira relieves stress, improves confidence, self-esteem and concentration. It also improves balance, coordination and creativity

MUSIC AND LANGUAGE LEARNING

You will learn live music by playing percussion instruments and the "living language" of Brazilian Portuguese through song and conversation

There is no comparison to the social connection people receive within training in our group sessions and various gatherings of different groups to promote the art, wellness, and friendship

About Me

While my resume is attached, I'd love to tell you a little about myself. My education is in Theater from both Boston University and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. This includes extensive training in acting, directing, writing, Meisner, Alexander Technique, production, dance, and entertainment history. After moving to New York, I quickly learned that my passions lay more in teaching performing arts rather than performing myself.

Teaching and helping others find tap into their creativity is a long rooted passion of mine. It began in Middle and High School when I was asked to choreograph the musicals in my town. I loved the challenge of visualizing a performance piece and explaining it to others. Witnessing a young person finally succeed in being free with their creativity is an extraordinary feeling.

I am excited to learn exactly what you/your child is looking to achieve within the performing arts and steadily guide you both grasping it.

Thanks for your time!

Sincerely,
Alexandra
