Capoeira Celebration

Graduates of the PS4 Capoeira After-School Program with their instructors Chuvisco and Gafa from Dance Brazil.

On February 1, 2013, PS4 students from the Capoeira After-School Program celebrated an 8-week course where they learned about Brazil and the components of the martial arts and dance style of Capoeira. Click here to see the video from the event!

With an audience of more than thirty teachers, parents and friends, graduates of the program got a chance to show what they learned.  Thanks to our very own Mr. Theodore for overseeing this and all after-school programs and instructors Paulo Da Silva (Chuvisco) and Angelo Ribeiro (Gafa) for their expertise and knowledge.   Special thanks to Jelon Viera and Patty Bryan from Dance Brazil and Fordham University Partnership Support Organization for making this program possible for the second year.  We appreciate your commitment to the boys and girls of PS4.
