The Brazilian Center (Cultural Exchange of America: Brazilian Center) is a grassroots nonprofit 501(c)3 organization which seeks to strengthen our community by celebrating Brazilian Culture and promoting a spirit of volunteerism. The Center is home to the popular Mistura Brasiliera Dance Company, host of Sacramento’s annual CARNAVAL party, as well as the location of culturally-inspired classes for all ages and abilities.
