    haha, isn't she adorable? Ik houd van haar stijl. I think malabarisms is jugglers or juggling.

    But yes, dear Giselle, I love latin rhythms of all kinds. I grew up in the northeastern US where there were a lot of puerto ricans and cubans in my city. Latin music was everywhere on the street and on the radio. But I have never heard of Capoeira. Thanks so much for bringing it here.

    Now what are the chances of finding a Capoeira group here in Ohio where they consider yodeling to be exotic?
