Aché Brasil's performers put on an amazing show Thursday. The meaning of each dance performance was explained in a way that kids could understand. Students were engaged by stories of Afro-Brasilian history and culture, experienced the sound of the berimbau instrument and witnessed continuous cartwheels, spins, samba dancing and martial arts.  Thoughtful questions were asked by students about when the performers first took up dancing and where the costumes came from. Enjoy the video!   We would like to thank Sandy Guedes for purchasing a school set of the Aché Brasil CD and DVD showcasing Capoeira and Brasil's music and dance. Thanks Sandy!
