Instituto CTE Capoeiragem, a non-profit legal entity, which is currently chaired by Mestre Balão, was formed in 2013 to support the group's units, assist capoeiristas and partner institutions of CTE Capoeiragem and develop socio-cultural projects and actions. The main projects are Capoeiragem Mirim and the International Capoeiragem Festival. The main axis of work of all CTE Capoeiragem centers is education based on the culture of Capoeira. From this point on, the different aspects are enhanced as: practical and theoretical knowledge of Capoeira; teaching methodologies; formatting of several local, national and international events; folk shows; research on the cultural roots of Capoeira and fun related to it; valorization of the old masters; among other actions.
