What is Brazilian Zouk?

If you have never experienced this beautiful and mesmerizing dance, you are in for a treat! Brazilian Zouk, also known as "Zouk-Lambada," is a partner dance with origins in Lambada and traditionally danced to "Zouk" music made popular in the French Caribbean. Brazilian Zouk can be characterized by its smooth and flowing nature as well as its circular upper body movements, dramatic hair whips, dips, and magical connection. As this dance has evolved along with popular music and dance trends, you will now see various styles where partners may deviate from the traditional rhythm to allow for musical interpretation and enhanced partner connection. Brazilian Zouk can be danced to many musical genres including Hip-Hop, R&B, New Age, & Pop (to name a few), lending itself to be enjoyed by a wide range of dancers (or non-dancers) from all backgrounds!

Here are some videos that showcase Brazilian Zouk along with other Embodied Retreat adventures! 

"Dance to awaken your soul, your truth, your connection to humanity, your connection to the divine. Dance to embrace beauty and imperfection, to surrender to love, to confront fear, to relinquish control. Dance to align with the pulse of the universe, to be in compassionate harmony with your being and all beings. Dance to be  expansive, to be love, to be infinitely connected. Dance to collect and disperse the pieces of your stardust as you fly, collide, twirl, enmesh, collapse, embrace, whirl, and release into the arms of the loving Mystery."
