Mestre Beck and Capoeira Volta ao Mundo students are asking for your help to raise funds for our annual Brazilian Cultural Show and Capoeira Batizado and Formatura. As many of you know, the costs involved for these events are high. We are asking for your support to help us bring Capoeira education to Maine with visiting Masters this August! Along with this venture, we are raising money for kid's batizado scholarships that will help out our families.

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial and dance form that combines movement and music through the cultural exchange of Brazilian arts to us in America. The benefits that Capoeira provides are endless, including physical and mental benefits that provide the body and mind peace and balance. Capoeira is unlike any other martial art in that it provides a healthy community environment for everyone to come together in friendship, providing personal and physical growth and challenge on many levels through acrobatics, kicks, defenses, musical instrument playing and singing. It is an art form suited to any individual and can especially benefit children as it provides not only a discipline in which to be a team member, but also allows for learning to respect others, respect of self and respect of challenge, bringing these values into the real world of school and home life. It allows for creative and individual expression through the integrated arts in the forms of movement and music. We are proud of Capoeira in Maine and hope to spread the word of its beautiful culture far and wide.

We are hoping to bring special guests from Brazil this year to help us celebrate. Guest Masters from Brazil will be teaching workshops in Portland, Maine throughout the week leading up to our Batizado and Formatura. The date of our event is Saturday, August 2, 2014 and we will have workshops beginning on Wednesday, July 30. 

Mestre Beck and students wholeheartedly appreciate any dollar amount you can give to make this event special for everyone involved. We hope this to be a memorable cultural experience this summer as we are looking forward to it and we hope you are too.

Throughout the week we will have workshops and rodas with fun and friends, learning about Capoeira, Brazilian Culture, dance and more. Please join us.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!
