Community Outreach

We offer a variety of outreach opportunities to the community. We provide dynamic cultural experiences for teachers, organizers, and community leaders. Contact us to set up a workshop or performance.

WHAT WE OFFER:

  • After School Programs
  • Workshops
  • Performances
  • Summer Camps
  • Quarterly class sessions
  • Lectures inclusive of Capoeira Angola history, Afro-Brazilian Culture, and African Diaspora, dance/movement

BENEFITS TO THE COMMUNITY:

Capoeira is a fun physical activity that encourages individuals to build strength while working together with others. This art form can encourage self-esteem among students as they begin to develop both their bodies and minds while supporting camaraderie as a way to overcome our differences. Educating and engaging people in this martial art can bring empowerment and inspiration reflected in its historical influence in overcoming oppression.
