TheFamily Dances


TheFamily Dances is creating a life with dance and capoeira.

We design and facilitate movement-based, creative arts education and engagement programming for schools, communities, organizations, and families. Our aim is to cultivate spaces where families can experiment with and discover their creativity together. We are based in Washington, DC and facilitate programs locally, nationally, and internationally. Join us for monthly workshops or send us a note at to design a customized program for your family, community group, school, or organization. Follow @thefamilydances on Instagram,  Facebook, and Twitter to stay connected with all of our projects!
