ABADÁ Capoeira’s Bay Area studio is helmed by the only woman ranked among the top 50,000 capoeiristas in the world. This grant supports her studio’s free and subsidized classes in five public schools serving low-income children and youth. ABADÁ’s curriculum incorporates instruction on the martial art’s five musical instruments, singing in Portuguese, and mastering the challenging movement required. Schools admire this program for the immersive introduction to Brazilian culture it provides and for the exercise practitioners gain.
