What is Brazilian zouk?
If you have never experienced this beautiful and mesmerizing dance, you are in for a treat! Brazilian Zouk, also known as “Zouk-Lambada,” is a partner dance with origins in Lambada and traditionally danced to “Zouk” music made popular in the French Caribbean. Brazilian Zouk can be characterized by its smooth and flowing nature as well as its circular upper body movements, dramatic hair whips, dips, and magical connection. As this dance has evolved along with popular music and dance trends, you will now see various styles where partners may deviate from the traditional rhythm to allow for musical interpretation and enhanced partner connection. Brazilian Zouk can be danced to many musical genres including Hip-Hop, R&B, New Age, & Pop (to name a few), lending itself to be enjoyed by a wide range of dancers (or non-dancers) from all backgrounds!
