Capoeira Speaks: Dancing for Social Intelligence and Life Success Skills

Artist: Skher Brown and the Dancing Warriors Ensemble

Type: Residencies


Did you know that over 90% of communication is non-verbal? Through this residency, students will strengthen these skills through the body language of the African-Brazilian martial arts called Capoeira Angola.  This residency is well-suited for inclusive settings and those with behavioral, social, emotional and/or physical disabilities.



Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • Kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
  • Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
