What Dance Moves Can You Learn From This Class?
Ginga (pronounced as Jin-ga) is a basic move done in Capoeira. This dance move is done by positioning your arms in a defensive state, and then bending your front leg while keeping your back leg straight. Then, place the back leg parallel to the front leg, and bend both knees together. Then, put one leg at the back while bending the front leg, and then place the back leg parallel to the front leg once again. Ginga is done repeatedly and in a rhythmic motion.
This dance move is executed by actively moving your legs in a side-to-side motion while going with the rhythm of the music and maintaining a defense stance and focus.
Aú is a Capoeria dance move that requires doing cartwheeling movements and techniques.
This particular Capoeira dance move is done by lowering your body and putting both legs closer to each other; the back leg in a bending position while the front leg in a straight position. Then, one hand is supporting your body weight while the other hand is protecting the facial area all the time.
