What is Brazilian Zouk?
Brazilian Zouk is an energetic, creative, and flowy Latin dance that originated from a Brazilian dance called Lambada. It was often danced to a Caribbean style of music called Zouk, and this is where the name comes from! Brazilian Zouk is incredibly diverse (!), but here are a few sample videos of renowned, beloved dancers & instructors so that you can get a feel for the dance!
