Instrutora Trindade has been training Capoeira with Capoeira Luanda first under Professor Tiba and then under Professor Sabiá since 2005. Under Professor Sabiá's guidance, she has reached the rank of graduada. With roots in dance, she danced at New York City’s LaGuardia High School of the Arts and Ballet Hispanico, graduating with a BFA degree in Dance from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She has performed nationwide with various dance companies, including performing Capoeira for the American Folk Festival in Bangor, Maine and choreographer, Carlos Dos Santos at Aaron Davis Hall. She currently teaches children’s Capoeira classes in Queens and at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She also works for the Capoeira Center of New York, a nonprofit organization, where she promotes Capoeira through school presentations and programs. She is delighted to join the staff of PMT Dance Studio and teach Capoeira.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines dance, music, percussion, song, ritual, self-defense technique, and acrobatics. Capoeira developed as a result of over three hundred years of slavery in Brazil. Capoeira was born as an expression of resistance, as well as a method of spiritual and emotional empowerment. Through music and songs, slaves were able to conceal the combative purpose of Capoeira, while simultaneously illustrating the strength and beauty of cultural sharing. True to its historical roots, Capoeira today is a means of empowerment for its practitioners and a forum for social and cultural exchange.
