Capoeira 20100429

Sequence 1:
Negativa de bimba (remember, go low, but keep your leg off the floor)
Bend the leg that is straight out over the leg that is bent. (say bending the right leg over the left).
Then push up and bring the left hand back behind you, twisting. (in this case counter-clockwise)
The leg that made the cross is planted and the other leg comes out, you look in between your legs (in this case right foot plants and left leg comes out parallel).
Bring the planted leg past the leg that came out (right leg goes past the left) and down into negativa. But when you look, you're still looking to the front, where your imaginary partner is. (In this case, you should be looking to your left.) But remember to keep your head turned.
Twist about 90 degrees to the direction you're looking so that you can go into a fake au. The bend the leg that is in the air, and drop down into queda de rin. Then explode back into au. Bend the leg that is in the air and move forward into a midtroca. Still looking at your imaginary partner. Then bring the leg that is back up and parallel. Finish back and ginga.
Note: the first two or four times we did this exercise (one or two on each side), instead of going into a queda de rin and exploding out, the class had to go down to their heads and push back up 10 times.

Down the floor:
A: Macaco landing on head
I: Macaco. Focus on control. Don't land hard.
B: Plant the hand, hop up and go through the motion. Then turn over and walk three steps.

Down the floor:
Meia lua de frente, finish parallel. (Right leg meia lua de frente, finishes to the right of the left leg parallel).
Drop down into negativa, sitting on the leg that just made the kick. (Left leg is straight out)
Then about half a role. So that you're legs are together to go into a macaco. You do this at a sort of angle, about 45 degrees. This is where you move forward for the exercise. A: do the macaco landing on head. I: Do the macaco. B: Do an au.
Note: In this situation, A,I,B are not strictly Advanced, Intermediate, and Beginner, it is more of, do the level that you are able to do.

"Sou capoeira e pego na viola"
Sou capoeira e pego na viola
Sou capoeira e pego na viola
Se essa roda ficar boa nao vai teminar agora
Se essa roda ficar boa nao vai teminar agora
Nao vai teminar agora
Nao vai teminar agora
Nao vai teminar agora
Nao vai teminar agora
Toquei berimbau, e cantei pra iaia
Toquei berimbau, e cantei pra iaia
Na roda de capoeira quero ver gunga falar
Na roda de capoeira quero ver gunga falar
Quero ver gunga falar
Quero ver gunga falar

"Eu aprendi capoeira, La na rampa e no cais da Bahia"
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia (Chorus)

Vim da ilha de maré na saveiro do mestre João
Fui morar la na Preguiça me criei na Conceição
Eu descia o Pelourinho eu subia a Gamaleira
Eu passava o dia inteiro na roda de capoeira
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia (Chorus)

Camafeu e traira jogava
Valdemar tocava com seu Zacharias
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia
O gringo filmava me fotografava
eu pouco ligava também não sabia
Que minha foto ia sair no jornal
Na Russia na França e até na Hungria
Capoeira é uma arte, capoeira é uma luta
capoeira é um balé mais lindo da minha Bahia
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia
Eu aprendi capoeira
La na rampa e no cais da Bahia (Chorus)
