The Ka is an important symbol in Ancient Kemetic cosmology, meaning soul. The ka spirits represented the conscience that leads the person to compassion, honor and most especially righteousness. In some, it is depicted as vigor, youth and anything that the person was believed to be desirable and right most especially eternal life.
The Ka Arts seeks to be the catalyst in igniting curiosity, awareness and vision in every soul, supporting the growth of intelligent and healthy individuals within all communities.
Invented by enslaved Africans in Brazil, Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art disguiesd as a dance. Influenced by a blend of martial arts and dances from diverse African cultures, Capoeira was practiced as a hidden, playful game to fool the slave owners.
Capoeira is distinguished by the incorporation of acrobatics and dance movements and the intergration of music in the practice. The way dance is incorporated makes it a fun and productive work out experience.
Benefits of Capoeira: Relieves stress, improves confidence, self-esteem, and concentration. It also improves balance, coordination and creativity.
The Saturday Capoeira program is built on youth development and the African cultural arts. Promoting a healthy lifestyle, leadership, focus, discipline and enrichment.
