Ripton students present Capoeira April 19

RIPTON — Capoeira is coming to Ripton Elementary School. As part of the school-wide thematic study, “How We Express Ourselves,” and thanks to grants from Vermont Arts Council and Friends of Ripton School, the school will welcome Fabio (Fua) Nascimento to Ripton from Thursday, April 12, through Thursday, April 19.
Capoeira is a blend of dance and martial arts originating from Brazil and continuing today as an important practice and way of life in Brazilian culture. A native of Brazil, Fua Nascimento has been performing and teaching on three continents for more than a decade, introducing capoeira to thousands of people through workshops, classes, and residencies.
There will be a dress rehearsal from 1:45-3p.m. on Thursday, April 19. Families are welcome to attend. The program will culminate with an evening performance for family and community members on Thursday, April 19, at 6 p.m.
