Hi Friends and Family,
Our beloved “Capoeira Academy” is at risk of closing its doors.
I have a deep connection with Capoeira that is hard for me to explain. But I will try....Every time I am in the “academy” it is like a switch gets activated and I am free. The everyday work stress disappears when I am at capoeira. This event is important for my family and my fellows Capoeiristas. UCA Berkeley is the headquarters and it can not close its doors so I am asking for your help to donate to this cause.
Thank you for considering
"I want to participate in the roda-thon because I want to help others and build a better community like I have found here at UCA Capoeria Berkeley. I love capoeria because I like to move my body and like the music and instruments. I would be sad if my capoeria school does not have the money to stay opened, so that is why I am participating in the roda-thron."

"I love capoeria because the rhythm is nice and I was born into capoeria. It is so enjoyable to move my body and come to coperia which feels like a second home."
~Martina, 9-years-old (daughter)
"Capoeria is so beautiful to wittiness, experience, and I am grateful that our family is apart of such a positive, welcoming, and diverse community. Our children and my husband have grown so much in their physical abilities. It is impressive and I am in awe of how effortless they make capoeria look. Capoeria is so inclusive of everyone and all abilities and includes so many art forms. It would be a tragedy if our capoeria school does not earn the resources it needs to operate. Please consider donating whatever you are able."
