Zouk is mainly danced in Brazil (Rio, Brasilia and other states), Australia, The Netherlands, Spain, Czech Republic, Finland, and some other European countries. It uses a modified, slower, smoother, even more sensual version of the lambada and is typically danced on Zouk-love style music.

The Brazilian Zouk dance style was first developed in the Ilha Dos Pescadores in Rio de Janeiro around 1989. In the Netherlands it was first introduced (in the early 2000s). Today Brazilian zouk is also danced on R&B, Latin pop, hip-hop, R&B, Arabic music, etc, mixed with a zouk beat. In this workshop you will learn how to play with the urban side of Zouk and see how it is fused with some of the current beats today.
