What is Brazilian Zouk?
Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance originating from Brazil. Also known as zouk-lambada, the dance is a descendant of lambada, the music & dance style that swept over the world like a storm in the late 1980's. This dance is characterized by the dancers’ undulating bodies and the girls' flowing hair. Depending on the style of Brazilian zouk, you can see a close connection embrace and long graceful steps, strong hip movements, body isolations, off axis spins and beautiful head movements. While the dance is often called sensual, this does not mean that it is sexual. It is danced by people of all ages in night clubs, dance schools and events worldwide! The zouk scene is a very unique scene that is warm, friendly and a place for connection, welcoming all newcomers.
