Brazilian Zouk Dancing & How It All Started!

Brazilian Zouk dancing is a Latin dance that started in the early 1990s in Brazil. It is also known as the “Zouk- lambada” dance. Brazilian zouk originated from the Brazilian lambada dance and its style is also influenced by other Brazilian dances.

The dance is characterized by strong and flowing movements. Zouk or Brazilian Zouk can also be combined with different musical genres like hip-hop, classical, pop, and more.

History Of Brazilian Zouk Dancing

The Brazilian Zouk was popularized in the 90s and it has since become popular in different parts of the world. Places like the USA, Asia, Australia, and Europe.
The Brazilian Zouk dance is a sensual dance routine with origins from lambada ” the forbidden dance”. The dance uses “Zouk” rhythms that are part of the French Caribbean Zouk Music. Lambada was popular in the 80s in Brazil.

The Lambada Dance

It all started with the Lambada dance. Its popularity was influenced by bands like Kaoma and Beto Barbosa. The Lambada dance also incorporated other music styles like Gipsy Kings, Caribbean Zouk among others.

Its popularity was fueled by films, TV shows, and DJs. The Lambada dance then dominated many nightclubs in Brazil, including São Paulo, Porto Seguro, Rio de Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte.

In the 90s the Lambada dance began to decline and it, therefore, gave rise to the Brazilian Zouk dance. Lambada dance was modified using Zouk Music and it acquired different characteristics.

Before the name, Brazilian Zouk was settled it had had so many different names that made it hard to promote it. Many meetings were held and it was decided that the “Zuok” name wasn’t suitable as it existed in the Caribbean.

In 2006 a meeting was held at Mina’s Zouk Congress ( now known as BHb Zouk Congress) to identify a permanent name for the dance. A majority of voters choose the name Brazilian Zouk.

Brazilian Zouk Dance Council

The council helps in supporting and promoting every aspect of the Brazilian Zouk Dance. The council:

  • Serves to offer information services and keep records for the Brazilian Zouk dance
  • Promoting the growth of Brazilian Zouk dancing to a wider audience. 
  • Helps through maintaining a global website among others. 

As Brazilian Zouk continues to grow, we have influential dancers coming up with new styles for the meditative dance.  The dance has somehow been fused with dance styles like salsa, bachata, and Argentinian tango. 

As the dance continues to gain popularity across the world its dancing styles also keep evolving. Some of the styles found outside Brazil include Mzuok, Soul Zuok, Neo Zouk, and Zouk Flow.
