EducArte is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Maryland that provides educational programs in music and dance—including workshops, classes, residencies, and performances. Our work focuses on community building and cross-cultural communication. Our programs build a vibrant and diverse cultural arts community and encourage artist and audience collaboration.
Founded in 2015 by Brazilian musician and arts administrator Pablo de Oliveira and dance scholar and educator Kate Spanos, EducArte is fulfilling the local Brazilian community’s needs by establishing creative cultural spaces for the education, preservation, and practice of our cultural traditions, as well as establishing Washington, DC, as a important destination for Brazilian artists to perform. Originally known as Samba Jig Productions, EducArte was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2019.
