CapoeiraDC (Capoeira Malês DC) is a community-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering the Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira in the nation’s capital, through classes, community outreach and access, and youth development programs.Capoeira is a unique blend of martial arts, dance, and music that evolved from the vibrant Afro-Brazilian culture.

Under the tutelage of Professor Morcego( a student of Mestre Curisco of Capoeira Malês in Seattle, WA), CapoeiraDC has blossomed into dedicated community of talented capoeiristas who volunteer their time to teach classes, perform, and organize community events. This year marks the 15 year anniversary of Capoeira Males DC, and thus our 15th batizado- a celebration of the progression in skill of our capoeirista, the vibrancy of community we have formed, and innumerable bonds formed with our extensive capoeira family throughout the year.
