The People’s Conservatory: In School Movement Arts

at Manzanita SEED Elementary School

TPC’s In School Movement Arts program provides West African dance, Capoeira, and Music classes that give students the opportunity to engage in music making and dance forms that connect to cultural histories. Students create and play instruments, sing capoeira chants, and build community in the form of the Capoeira “Roda” or circle of play. The combination of movement and music provides a playful, uplifting, and historically rooted arts experience for the students.
