Help us celebrate our students achievements!!!
We need your support!

We have a goal to fundraise $20,000 to cover operating expenses for the year and to promote our annual Graduation Ceremony (Batizado).
As with any charitable organization, Abadá-Capoeira DC depends on contributions in order to sustainably cover our costs and keep our programs active. We serve the community with performances, educational and charitable activities, and we offer classes at a below-market rate. The price of tuition alone is not sufficient to keep Abadá-Capoeira DC operating plus the costs of this amazing event for the students.

For the past nine years, Abadá-Capoeira DC has been the DC Metro Area's leader in the promotion of capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art and self-defense discipline that brings together fighting techniques, acrobatics, dance, percussion, and songs. Through the study of capoeira, we seek to inspire and empower people to realize their full potential as responsible, confident and productive members of society. Capoeira is such an important art expression that it is part of the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Any donation will help us.
$5, $10, $15, $20
