What is Brazilian Zouk?

The definition of our dance

Brazilian Zouk is Street Latin’s fastest growing dance. It can be danced to many genres of music – from Pop’s Top 100, to traditional Zouk music, to Brazilian music. It is a highly technical dance that is easy to pick up. While salsa is led with the hands, Brazilian Zouk’s is led by various part of the body. Its signature head & body movements is what makes the dance unique and gives its sensual characteristic. This beautiful dance began in Brazil during the early 1990s. It originated from a Brazilian dance called Lambada with influences from Samba de Gafieira, Brazilian Bolero and Forró.
