Mission Statement

DanceBrazil is to furthering the development and understanding of Brazilian and African-based culture. Its focus is on the culture of Bahia, Brazil, where the largest segment of Brazilians of African descent reside.

Description

For more than twenty-five years, DanceBrazil has thrilled audiences across the United States and throughout the world with its dazzling artistry, which is inspired by the cultural tapestry of Brazil. Whether in the streets or on stage in the most prestigious theaters, the dancers and musicians of DanceBrazil never fail to enthrall audiences with the company's unique fusion of Afro-Brazilian movement, contemporary dance and Capoeira, the traditional dance/martial arts form that had its origins in Africa and evolved in colonial Brazil as a means of fighting against enslavement.
