General Operating Support:
Contribute to maintain our occupancy expenses; marketing costs; equipment (tumbling mats, bags and pads for kicking drills, musical instruments); teacher and staff training and salaries.
Help us keep our programming alive and thriving during the pandemic. Our studio is currently closed, and we are continuing to offer classes online and outdoors. Your much needed support will help us tremendously.
Supplement the scholarships that we give to our local youth training in Berkeley from various bay area neighborhoods, as well as through our related United Capoeira Association schools. Our goal is to get as many young people who are interested in capoeira to discover their possibilities in it and the power of capoeira to speak to and through them.
B2B Joga Capoeira:
Support the prodution of the B2B Joga Capoeira documentary. An incredible journey from Berkeley, CA to Bahia, Brazil by Bicycle. An adventure undertaken by Mestre Acordeon and a group of students in search of capoeira's power to transform lives, that has inspired so many throughout the Americas. B2B was a success! We are working on the results of this project.
