Brazilian Zouk is a relatively new partner dance compared to other dances in Brazil or around the world. Also, unlike dances like Salsa, Bachata, Samba and Tango, Brazilian Zouk does not have particular style of music directly associated with the dance. In light of this, we created a course focused on Brazilian Zouk’s history and development, including the people, venues, and events that made and are still making the scene grow and thrive.
In this lecture-style course with Gui Prada and Alisson Sandi, we will begin at the beginning of the Brazilian Zouk world. The classes cover the history of the dance and the music, the development of the dance, the scene, and the people that made it happen.
this is not a follow-along dance class; and
classes are in a lecture format.
At District Zouk, we have a strong belief that understanding the roots, the people, and the culture that make the dance what it is makes your experience with Brazilian Zouk richer and more informed. This course will bring you knowledge that is valuable on your journey.
