ABOUT: ZenZouk is a COMPREHENSIVE school and syllabus evolving Brazilian Zouk through classical roots ie Lambada. ZZ methodology and school is rooted in both Traditional Lambada the mother of the dance and Brazilian Zouk(rio count). The methodology fuses the TWO both on the RIO COUNT so that you can become the most versatile dancer in all of what Brazilian Zouk has to offer by being able to study them separately or together. In addition to providing TRUE foundations, the use of elements is used throughout teachings for deeper body awareness in what is known as ZZ movement.

Our COMPREHENSIVE LIBRARY also contains teachings in the following and it can be accessed by our students at a discount. Brazilian Zouk | Lambada | ZZ Ezentials (Brazilian Zouk Lambada) | ZenZouk Movement and Conditioning.
