Brazilian Zouk Club & Group Classes


Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance that began in Brazil during the early 1990s. The most characteristic feature of Zouk is the fluidity of body movement with partner connection, which can be led both on and off the vertical axis by intricate leading and following techniques. Other features include body isolations, tilted turns, traveling head motion, and counterbalance techniques. Brazilian Zouk is a dance with well-defined basic steps and rhythmic patterns.

Starting a new dance can be challenging, but we are here to support and guide you every step of this journey!
