Bahia In Motion is a Brazilian Arts organization based in Seattle, WA offering classes, events and workshops in Brazilian dance, music and Capoeira (Brazilian Martial Arts). Bahia In Motion partners with arts organizations both locally and internationally to provide education and outreach regarding the cultural heritage of Brazil. Bahia In Motion also runs yearly cultural immersion tours to Bahia, Brazil.
Bahia In Motion’s work is firmly rooted in the importance of a balanced body, mind and spirit and the integral role the arts play in nurturing this balance. Bahia In Motion is driven by the belief that individuals and families thrive when they feel healthy, engaged and part of something larger than themselves, especially when learning from cultures outside their own. Bahia In Motion encourages people to find joy within themselves, and transform life’s challenges through movement and the power of human connection.
The pieces from Bahia In Motion’s Orcas Island show: Abrindo Caminhos (Opening Pathways), spans several cultural traditions from Brazil: Dances of the Afro-Brazilian Orixas from Bahia, Capoeira, the Brazilian Martial Art born out of the resistance against slavery in Salvador Bahia and Maculelê, Capoeira’s signature dance, Xaxado from the northeast region of Pernambuco, and Samba, with its roots in Bahia which spread to Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and throughout the world.
