Description: Project Capoeira, Inc. is a 501 ©(3) nonprofit organization. The mission of Project Capoeira is to promote intercultural understanding and a sense of community through arts education and social outreach. The organization works to preserve, develop and share Capoeira, a Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, games, music, and dance. Project Capoeira takes a lead role in promoting Brazilian culture in the Philadelphia area.
Our commitment is to create a safe, welcoming, non-discriminatory environment to learn, explore, and grow as individuals in broader communities. Arts education for adults and children is offered through Project Capoeira’s programming and by working in cooperation with community centers, schools, museums, libraries, camps, and festivals. Project Capoeira’s programs are designed to support and follow educational curricular guidelines. Most importantly, the social interaction between students of Capoeira, many of whom come from diverse backgrounds, provides an optimal space for intercultural communication.
