In 2004, expanding its actions, the Company performed in this space the creation of: Against those hard to please, Encarnado, Hymnen, presentations of its repertoire what we are made of and brief forms ; presentation of the rehearsal of the show "Isabel Torres", by French choreographer Jérome Bel; season of the show "Movente", by Rio de Janeiro choreographer Paula Nestorov; workshops and workshops with teachers and guest artists; residence of the dance company Paula Nestorov. All these activities were free of charge, attracting a diversified audience.

In 2007, the Company, always in partnership with Redes da Maré, started a new project in the community of Nova Holanda, in Maré. The creation of the Mare Arts Center, a place for sharing, conviviality and exchange of knowledge, directed to the formation, creation, diffusion and production of arts.

At Centro de Artes da Maré, the Company created POROROCA and PIRACEMA, besides having developed the project "dança para todos" between 2008 and 2009 with free classes in body awareness, contemporary dance for young people and creative dance for children.

Besides the performances, the company organizes and offers lectures, debates and workshops for both beginners and professionals in dance.
