Culture through movement

Mission Statement

The goal of the Capoeira Arts Foundation (CAF) - Tax ID: 94-2853995 is to create awareness of the depth and breadth of the African-Brazilian experience, with a strong focus on Capoeira, a rich hybrid fight-like dance, dance-like fight, ritual, and way of life. To achieve its mission, CAF teaches Capoeira and other related traditional art forms; presents artistic, social, and cultural events that aim to strengthen the community; publishes written works; produces musical recordings and documentary films. This diverse body of work supports the human and aesthetic values of our culture rich community. CAF welcomes similar organizations and individuals to participate in an ongoing dialogue of ideas and to develop collaborative projects that challenge and bring out the best in all of us.

The Capoeira Arts Foundation, Inc. is a California based, 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. We deeply appreciate all efforts to support CAF in its mission. Please donate today.

Thank you to our generous community sponsors, the City of Berkeley Civic Arts Commission, Zellerbach, County of Alameda, BRIDGE association of realtors, Hayward Unified School District, Oakland Unified School District, and our students and friends.
