History of Brazilian Zouk

rioairHistory: Brazilian Zouk is an adaptation of the Lambada dance which originated in the north of Brazil and the name derives from it being a Brazilian dance which has evolved with the French Caribbean Zouk music.
The dance itself it completely different from ‘Zouk’ which is a French Caribbean dance and requires partners to dance very closely, slowly, sensually and in unison, hence the name of our dance is 'Brazilian Zouk'.

The movements are gentler with visual influences from other dances and music and high value placed on the connection between partners.
