Brazilian Zouk Lambada (traditional Rio-style) is a beautiful and intimate partner dance, evolved from Lambada. A modern and slower version of Lambada, it is sensual, trance-like, involves lots of turns and dips, and close body movement.

Unlike Salsa, which is led with the hands, Brazilian Zouk is led by connection with various parts of the body, such as the legs, arms, shoulders, head, etc. and even through eye contact alone.

Brazilian Zouk can be danced to many kinds of music. One of the reasons it is gaining popularity is Zouk can be danced to R&B songs (e.g. from Rihanna, Neyo, Craig David), dubstep and chillstep songs, hip hop songs, romantic songs, as well as lounge music such as those you'll find on Cafe Del Mar albums. This helps to keep the music, and thus the dance, relevant and addictive.

Brazilian Zouk is not only an elegant, graceful and beautiful dance, but it's also a good form of exercise. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be very flexible to do Brazilian Zouk. On the contrary, when you do Brazilian Zouk, you will become more flexible and stronger, especially in your core, back and thigh muscles.

In this 2-hour x 4-lesson introductory workshop, you'll learn the basic steps, turns and partner moves of Brazilian Zouk, as well as the physical connection required. The steps and body movement are different from Salsa, Bachata, etc. so they will take some getting used to, if you already do those forms of dance.

Please note:

You do not need a partner to join the class. Classmates will be partnered up with each other, and partners will be rotated frequently.

As Zouk is a fairly intimate and physically-close dance, you have the option of staying with a specific partner during the workshop. However, we do recommend rotating partners and partnering with all your classmates during the workshop.

For greater mobility, please wear pants and proper dance shoes. No skirts allowed.

About Brazilian Zouk at Two Left Feet:

Two Left Feet is the first dance school to offer classes on Brazilian Zouk (traditional Rio-style). Since their first Zouk workshop in July 2008, Two Left Feet now has a Zouk performance team, and has performed Zouk in various events in Singapore as well as in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Two Left Feet is also the only school to provide continuous classes on Zouk, from beginner to advanced classes.

Zouk classes are taught by Jean Goh and Wendy Yee, who were first introduced to Zouk in July 2008 by Brazilian dancer, Alisson Sandi. As their interest in Zouk grew, this was followed by even more personal instruction from Alisson, Jaime Jesus, Alex Carvalho, Renata Pecanha, and more. In March 2010, Jean & Wendy spent two and a half weeks in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, purely to advance their dance skills in Zouk. The experiences and insights they gained through social dancing and numerous group and private lessons have been simply invaluable, and they aim to pass this knowledge to all their students.

Today, Jean & Wendy continue to advance their skills in Brazilian Zouk through lessons with highly acclaimed Zouk professors (Alisson Sandi, Alex de Carvalho & Daniela Wergles, China & Luciana of SoukZouk, Renata Pecanha & Jorge Peres, Kadu & Larissa, Mafie Zouker), whenever the opportunity arises, through their travels or at Zouk congresses around the world.
