Event description



The Brazilian Zouk & Intimacy Intensive at Interfusion Festival brings to you the essence of this unique dance and embraces its culture, connection and healing dynamics facilitated by world known international instructors. The intensive taught by Anderson and Brenda, Guilherme, and Kuna.

Designed to combine Brazilian Zouk's technical and metaphysical aspects with breathing techniques and intimacy practices, the intensive is intended to advanced dancers who feel comfortable and capable of deeply connecting with your partner.

During the last decade, Brazilian Zouk took over the world and became one of the most versatile and creative social dances there is. Due to the freedom in which dancers can touch, move and feel, Brazilian Zouk also became a powerful tool to explore, study and understand connection and intimacy in levels not experienced in our everyday lives.

"We can all relate and recall one moment, dancing zouk with someone, where you felt a level of intimacy that is different from all the others we experienced up to that moment. It is not romantic, not sexual, not fraternal, it is something else. Therefore, considering the unique opportunity it provides to integrate many forms of art and its mission to bring new experiences to people, we present the Zouk and Intimacy Intensive".

-Guilherme Prada, Zouk Program Director




This special intensive is designed for experienced Brazilian Zouk dancers who want to explore deeper concepts both in zouk and intimacy. Therefore, the number of people attending will be limited to provide more attention, details and feedback to participants. Festival attendees are invited to apply if they meet 4 of the minimum prerequisites asked during the ticket check out process.
