Brazilian Dance Arts

There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.

Dancing is a silent poem of which each movement is a word.

To touch, to move, to inspire are the true gifts of dance.

It is a barometer telling the state of the soul.

This cannot be explained in words, it has to be danced.

When the music changes, so does the dance.

Dancing faces you towards heaven, whichever direction you turn.

Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of all arts.

It is not mere a translation or an abstraction from life… it is life itself!

About the dance

Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance originating from Brazil. At first, known as Zouk Lambada, the dance is a descendant of Lambada, and it was danced to Lambada music. Later on, it was danced to Caribbean Zouk music, from where it got the name Zouk. Over the years, the dance changed and new Zouk styles evolved using elements of other dance styles such as ballet, modern dance and hip-hop. Brazilian Zouk has spread from Brazil over many other countries in the world. In addition, Zouk Music and many other different types of music are played for dancing Brazilian Zouk: Kizomba, Semba, Latin and Oriental music, Reggaeton, R&B,  Hip-hop, Dubstep and some kinds of pop music. There are many active DJs remixing hit tracks and layering them with a Zouk beat, catering to all tastes and styles of Zouk danced around the globe. The variety of music makes Brazilian Zouk dynamic and constantly evolving! The blend of different styles enriches Zouk even more. Communities like Zouk Blends stimulate these developments.
