WHEELS HIGH SCHOOL VISITS ACBX
For nearly 10 years, ACBX and the Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School have been collaborating on programs to support their students development and academic growth. Earlier this month, students visited our studio as part of their Urban Leadership Expeditionary Week in the neighborhood. Thank you WHEELS for leveraging ACBX and Capoeira Arts as an accessible educational resource in the community.
"ABADA-Capoeira Bronx has had a tremendous, heartfelt, and joyful impact on our students at Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School. Over the past few years, Jennifer and Coco have provided classes that speak to our students by combining movement, music, and character education. Coco is a master of using rhythm and music to get students to move and listen in ways that often appear magical. Watching the smiles and joy on our students' faces would be enough validation of the value of the classes but Coco and Jennifer that they cover the history of Capoeira and the connection to the lives of our students. Students' leave feeling empowered and uplifted as they learn not only the basic moves of Capoeira but the power of discipline, listening, and being part of a community." - Charlie Maciejewski, Teacher
Thank you Mr. Maciejewski for seeing the power of Capoeira in your students and your trust in the work of ACBX for nearly 10 years of collaborations.
