What is the cost?
The cost of the course is $60 for 8 weeks of 45 minute lessons. No make up classes, unless due to emergency instructor cancellation. Payable by cash, check or credit card.

Can I start any date, or do I need to start on the first day of the course?
The course will cycle through the basics in a structured manner from week to week, including introduction to basic kicks, defenses, and floreios. Each week we will also explore an element of capoeira culture, introduce musical instruments, and songs.

When can I transition to the regular class?
At the conclusion of the 8 week course, students may join the all levels classes, held Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays by Formando Aranha. Students who sign up upon completion will get a special promotion: a uniform for 1/2 price with their first month of classes ($40 value).
