From Our Editors
Founded in 1989 by Mestre Amen Santo—the choreographer who added a touch of authenticity to the capoeira scenes in 1993’s Only The Strong —Brasil Brasil Cultural Center is a community-oriented nonprofit organization dedicated to arts and fitness. The center offers a wide variety of martial arts, dance, fitness, and music programs for youth and adults in an effort to establish a healthy and safe space for the community. Like a fight with the cast of a variety show, capoeira classes combine martial artistry, dance, and acrobatics, fusing them into a stylized Afro-Brazilian art form. Students can also cut rugs in dance styles such as the samba, West African dance, and belly dancing, and youngsters can get their first taste of Brazilian rhythms through workshops with the Ballet Folclórico Do Brasil, a dance company that reaches more than 50,000 children annually.
