Aché Brasil

Event Details

The March edition of The Dance Centre’s popular Discover Dance! noon series features Aché Brasil – an explosion of colour, energy and music that embodies the exuberant culture and rhythms of Brazil. The company will demonstrate folkloric Afro-Brazilian dances and music, including the famous dance-martial art of capoeira – an astonishing display of acrobatics, breathtaking kicks and self-defence tactics accompanied by the irresistible sound of the berimbau.

Aché Brasil is famed for dynamic performances which represent the culture, traditions, music and movement of the people of Brazil. Founded by Mestre Eclilson de Jesus, the company has presented thousands of performances to enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim at festivals, theatres and events all over North America.

The word “Aché” stems from Yoruba, meaning, “all things positive” and it is with this spirit in mind that Aché Brasil is proud to bring the traditions and culture of the Brazilian people to Canadian audiences.
