Take a look at these creative guys:
Volta Miuda Capoeira, led by Mestrando Jamaika, is a Brazilian martial art group in Salt Lake City, Utah. Oddly, I met them in my library parking lot. Muscular individuals with strange musical instruments? I thought. I must say hello!
My own definition of Capoeira (cap-oh-wee-dah) - a type of dance with intense martial art flare and beauty. Since 2001, and with over 150 students, Mestrando Jamaika offers classes for many ages and levels of experience. Also, students are tested and presented with a cord - like a Karate belt - at a yearly Batizado. If you're local, you can see a performance at the Sandy library, August 13, 1:30 pm, or at the Hunter Library, August 16, 7:00 pm.
I'm continually amazed at the creativity I see in all walks of life. This is an impressive sport. Have you ever heard of it?
