Come take Dance class in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Based in Orange County, Brazilian Zouk in one of the newest and most trendy partner dance in the whole world. Originating from Brazil, also known as zouk-lambada, the dance is a descendant of lambada, the music & dance style that swept over the world like a storm in the late 1980's. Brazilian zouk is characterized by the dancers’ undulating bodies and the girls' flowing hair. Depending on the style of Brazilian zouk, you can see a close connection embrace and long graceful steps, strong hip movements, body isolations and upper-body torsions, wild spins and whip-like head movements. While the dance is often called sensual, it is not sexual or erotic. It is danced by people of all ages in night clubs, dance schools and events around the world!
Classes will be progressive with the goal of growing the OC Zouk community as well as growing the level of our students.
