Culture + Exercise + Community
ABADÁ-Capoeira Bronx (ACBX) works to preserve, share and expand the art of capoeira within diverse communities and families. ACBX uses the practice of Capoeira as a medium to develop youth, build community and inspire people to reach their maximum potential.
ACBX creates multifaceted Capoeira Arts programs that explore the many disciplines the art encompasses from which students can benefit from physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Our programs cater to all ages and operate on-site, at our full time Capoeira Cultural Arts Center in the Bronx and off-site, largely throughout NYC schools.
ACBX received 501(c)(3) status in 2017 and opened its full time Capoeira Arts Center – the first and only of its kind – in the Bronx the same year.
ACBX’s studio is a community space for Capoeira arts to flourish and for wellness to be accessible to all. In this light, the studio offers various fitness and wellness classes and is available for events.
We aim for this studio to be an environment where the community can create, build, nurture and bond all things that will support personal development in one’s life.
