The ensemble will perform a colorful, crowd-pleasing repertoire of Afro-Brazilian folkloric dances such as orixás, Samba de Roda, and capoeira, the martial art that fuses rhythmic music with high-energy gymnastics. Don’t miss this get-out-of-your-seat-and-move performance, part of Philadelphia’s Brazilian Day celebration. Tickets include access to the Barnes collection. Limited seating available.
