Long Beach, CA
Several years ago while traveling to Brazil I discovered a dance called Zouk Lambada that forever changed my life. It’s an amazing dance style that is growing fast all over the world. I’ve made it my personal goal to grow it here in the US and LA. The past few years I’ve spent my time here in LA teaching classes and bringing international teachers to the US.
Last year we succesfully created the first annual LA Zouk Congress with hundreds attending. It was an immensely successfull event and we plan on growing it this year! Join us on our journey! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for all the US Zouk community to unite and for new dancers to get exposed to this wonderful style.
I’ve pre-booked an impressive array of the best teachers from all corners of the globe including; Brazil, Australia and Europe. I’ve also booked the perfect venue here in LA that will host the hotel, workshops and parties all aboard an incredible ship; The Queen Mary! It will feature dozens of workshops, deck parties and vibrant dinner meals with entertainment and shows. Let’s not forget the late parties that will go late into the night.
