WHAT IS CA•PA?
CA•PA is a non-profit project inspired by the organization Hiphop4hope and their vision to fight against street violence in Manila, The Philippines. Where youth fight to survive in and out of the worlds most challenging and impoverished slums. That’s where hip hop dance can help them to transfer the experienced into something positive.
