When I first arrived at the Brazilian Arts Foundation, I was standing around with several other Capoeira initiates when class begun with a "warm up" that would generally have been my entire workout. The rest of class was spent twisting one way, legs the other way, and I am quite certain at some point I was standing on my head (or trying to). The whole time trying to follow the energy of the funny little man at the front of the room. It was a great workout

Two years later I still feel the same way about classes, but the Foundation itself has impressed me greatly. Constantly bringing together people in various walks of life, the foundation has a wide variety of programs that cater to many different people; that said, it is always a joy to watch the lines of those programs blur as students pick up the "Axé" and strive to learn and be more involved. This energy transfers beyond the walls of the foundation in the community programs it has for the elderly as well as school programs for children.

I hope and expect many more people will find the Brazilian Arts Foundation as physically, mentally, and emotionally rewarding as I have.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Making a wealth of new friends and developing language and fitness skills that were previously dormant.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hope they can find more people to work/volunteer time so that they have the resources to accomplish more of the tremendous things they are capable of performing.

My drama class was recently studying about Brazil. Our director said while in Brazil he saw Capoeira. He then announced that in a couple weeks we would take a field trip to go see it. We ended up going to watch at the Brazilian Arts Foundation! It was one of the coolest things I've seen! Everyone was so involved from what looked like maybe 3 to 4 year olds to grown adults all learning the same art. My friends and I were in awe at the stuff they were doing. Everyone was always smiling and very friendly! It really was a good experience to watch them preform. We even are putting a piece of Capoeira in our living news paper that we're performing! :) The Brazilian Arts Foundation truely has a family enviorment willing to help!
