About Us

DanceBrazil was founded by Jelon Vieira in 1977, with the mission to further the development and understanding of Brazilian and Afro-Brazilian based culture through the creation and performance of new work and related educational programs. The company continues to enthrall audience with its unique fusion of Afro-Brazilian movement, contemporary dance, and Capoeira, the traditional dance/martial arts form that had its origins in Africa and evolved in colonial Brazil as a means of fighting enslavement.
