What is Brazilian Zouk?
A sensual dance originating in Brazil, Brazilian zouk has its roots in lambada – the “forbidden dance” from the late 80’s. Over time, it has evolved to include elements from ballet, hip hop, west coast swing and various other dance styles. Body isolations & rolls, spins on various axes, connecting in close holds and “head rolls” are all common parts of this dance.
Music-wise, it was originally danced to Caribbean zouk, but nowadays, it can be danced to various other genres as well – Pop, RnB, Top 40, Country, Reggae, etc
