I shared a video of a martial art dance called Capoeira. It’s a dance Brazilians use for defense and for fun. I chose Capoeira because I think the dance is really cool and very important to Brazilians. The reason the dance is important to Brazilians because it’s part of the country’s history. A long time ago Brazilians were slaves, and used capoeira for defense, and for the fun that’s why they do this dance today. The people in Brazil practice this dance all the time.This dance is very important to them. I sometimes imagine that I could do capoeira. It’s a very hard dance that involves lots of hip hop like flips and other acrobatics.  At the same time, it’s mixed with martial arts, using karate type moves. Brazil has many beautiful things that have come from the country’s rich history and culture.
