About Capoeira Social Project
108 Hilton AVe, Catonsville, MD 21228, US
Capoeira Social Project (CSP) is an educational non-profit organization that provides Performing and Visual Arts Programs with STEM reinforcement through the lens of Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art form. From the beginning our mission has been to provide programs for underprivileged and marginalized youth (specifically ages 5 - 18) by using a blend of creativity, education and self-expression, to enthusiastically empower and educate. W
With affiliates in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Capoeira Social Project brings the Afro-Brazilian martial art and movement form to school-aged youth in Baltimore, MD and connects schools and events throughout the DMV to the benefits of capoeira with workshops and open classes.
The nature of capoeira training provides innumerable benefits for young minds in often-overlooked communities, incorporating elements of physical education, history, music, language, and social cooperation in a single martial art practice.
Instructors emphasize the integrated benefits of capoeira during lessons, including improvements to physical health in children, cognitive enrichment through second language acquisition, development of motor skills and coordination through musical instruction, cultural engagement and exchange, and continuous reinforcement of various academic concepts.
Capoeira Social Project is dedicated to a justice-based approach to distribution of community resources and focuses its operations in under-resourced communities in East Baltimore, with the long-term goal of improving educational attainment and life course outcomes for members of the communities it serves.
