Support Us

We’re an all volunteer-run 501c3 organization.  Your donation would mean a lot to us.




We provide education and performance programming to hundreds of people each year. Annually we host about 3 events serving the public that cost between $5k-$15k.

Your charitable gift will help us:
– keep our class fees low for the general public and community
– provide after school capoeira arts programming in Chicago-area schools to hundreds of low-income students at low or no cost to students and their families
– partner and provide affordable workshops and performances for local libraries, schools, and community organizations

In other words:
$10 pays for 1 capoeira class for a child
$30 pays for a uniform for a youth capoeira student
$100 to $500 will help pay for a special guest master of capoeira to visit (from across the U.S., Brasil or Europe) and teach our students
