If your New Years resolution is to learn to partner dance then we are offering you the opportunity to experience the two most popular dance styles out of Rio de Janiero, Brazil - Samba de Gafieira and the popular Zouk Lambada.

We hold classes in Tauranga, Hamilton and Rotorua and can recommend classes available in other centers as well if you are holidaying in the area at the time.

Samba de Gafieira (also called Gafieira) must be distinguished from the ballroom Samba, Many see this form of Samba as a combination of Waltz and Tango. The style originated from samba dancing in cabarets and gafieiras (hence the name, literally meaning “Samba of gafieira”),

Zouk has captured the hearts of many people around the world and has been called "the dance of love". With its strong, flowing movements, Zouk attracts people who are generally strong and grounded, and looking for a dance that emphasizes interdependent partner interaction. The dance is close with an intimate partner connection. Dancers often deviate from the general rhythm to allow for musical interpretation. The pace of the dance is generally slow and smooth.

This brief workshop is free and it is ideal if you can bring a partner. Email us at if you wish to attend.
