Brazilian Zouk is a beautiful couple dance descended from Lambada in Brazil. The name Brazilian Zouk is used to distinguish the dance from the Caribbean Zouk dance, which is historically related to, but very different from the Lambada. The three dominant lines of Brazilian Zouk are Traditional Zouk, LambaZouk, and Zouk with different styles. The Brazilian Zouk dances are among the most popular couple dances in Brazil, others being Forró, Lambada, Samba de gafieira and Salsa.

Unlike salsa, which is led with the hands, Brazilian zouk is led by more parts of the body. Sometimes, in a basic sideways movement, it is the hips that move first, followed by the rest of the body, and this is part of what makes the dance so sensual. However, in various moves the dance partners are also connected by eye contact, legs, arms, shoulders, head, etc.

No partner required and no experience necessary!

We offer classes and courses that will take you from a complete Beginner ("from scratch") through to dancing like a "Pro"! Courses and classes for your level include Beginners, Improvers and Intermediate.

Taught by Dharshana Ratnayake and Shantini Oorjitham, National Champions
