Photos and Story by James Hill
PORTLAND – The Afro Brazilian art form Capoeira will be experienced firsthand in a non-credit class being offered this fall by Portland Community College. The art form combines dance, music, language, acrobatics, fair play, combat and a "sense of mischief," according to instructor Diane Vireday. Students are asked to wear low-soled shoes or attend barefoot. Capoeira will meet from 6 to 7:15 p.m., Tuesdays, Sept. 26 through Dec. 5, at the Distillery Studio, 702 N.E. Dekum St. Tuition is $75. A $10 fee for a workout shirt is payable at the first class. For more information, contact PCC Community Education at 503-978-5143.
