An exercise form that’s cropping up on gym timetables more and more in Dubai, Capoeira is a fast and fluid Brazilian martial art that incorporates elements of dance, music, folklore and performance. At The Shack, Dubai’s new beach gym in Umm Suqeim, a weekly class is held on the beach itself, and with Kite Beach’s winds rushing around you, it’s hard not to feel energised and exhilarated after just one session.
Dhs30. Sat 4.30pm. The Shack, Kite Beach, Umm Suqeim (056 695 9451).
