Grupo Axē Capoeira

Grupo Axē Capoeira

We attended most of the afternoon performances of the 2013 Tsunami on the Square. When we arrived at the Yavapai Courthouse we initially found seats atop the courthouse steps. The first performers were local students who had completed the week-long Circus Camp and now found themselves on stilts. Zumba® Fitness with Tiger and Crew were performing when we found empty chairs close to the stage. They demonstrated a lot of energy for a long period of time. Switch Academy of Performing Arts performed some dance skits and tap dance. Troupe Salamat started a sequence of acts with interesting costumes. Two groups of women in threesome used belly dance and Prescott’s historic presence of Little Egypt for their skit. The Hajarasca Música Andina, a trio from Columbia, are on tour playing Andean music with many instruments. The finale for us was Grupo Axē Capoeira with several musicians performing Brazilian music and dancers in a variety of costumes. Some mention should also be extended to the creative advertising skits by Presott College, Busky’s Casino, and an Arizona Massage Therapy School. All in all, a great afternoon in everyone’s hometown, Prescott.
