Capoeira - Flying bodies

Capoeira is a Brazilian mixture of martial arts, acrobatics, dancing, singing, playing music on self made instruments and last but not least - real fun.

During a public performance in Ravensburg/South-Germany I sneaked to the stage and made these photos with my 50mm (!) lens:

It seems as if gravity is not valid for these athletes. It was a feast for the eyes to

watch them!

Nice & well done shots! Capoeira started as a dance for prisoners in Brazil, learning marshal arts while pretending they are dancing!
