Our group, Axé Capoeira Arizona, is one of the most dynamic and premier performance troupes in the Southwest.

We are seeking support for our programming in the form of sponsorships, gift cards, non-perishable food, water bottles, and other small, healthy snacks for our upcoming events this year. These donations will help to support our community education and cultural enrichment activities throughout Southern Arizona, including:

2019 Batizado and Troca de Cordas Event: Featuring world class instruction and entertainment, this event is headlined by one of the greatest capoeiristas of the century, Marcos “Mestre Barrao” DaSilva. Special guests, instructors, and graduated students travel from around the world to this event to participate in seminars, rodas, performances, and the batizado/graduation ceremony itself.

Youth Programs: Our group has been working with children in Arizona for more than 10 years. The benefits of Capoeira for children is not only the historical, linguistic, musical, and cultural aspects, but also in the physical qualities it helps develop: balance, motor coordination, speed, and strength, as well as the discipline of traditional martial arts.

Community Outreach: Grupo Axé Capoeira Arizona has conducted countless workshops, performances, and residency programs for Arizona elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, corporations, sports teams, churches and charity organizations. We are favored performers with avid followers at multicultural festivals, street fairs and other events throughout the state.

Thank you for considering our request for support and for all the ways you support arts and culture in Southern Arizona! Please feel free to be in touch with any questions or to talk about how your donation can best serve our mission.
