WHAT IS ZOUK?
Also known as “Zouk-Lambada”, Brazilian Zouk is a sensual partner dance with origins in Lambada (aka “the Forbidden Dance”) and danced to “Zouk” rhythms made popular in the French Caribbean. These days the dance has developed deeply with influences in classical dance, street dance and other partnered styles (Forro, Samba, Salsa, etc.). The music that we dance to has also evolved with the introduction of various genres of music (i.e. hip hop, R&B, pop) that have similar rhythmic structures and/or a danceable lyrical component.

Zouk is known best for flowing motion and upper body movement (i.e. body waves), giving rise to the woman’s dramatic “hair flicks”. The dance is close with an intimate partner connection.
