Let’s show you how to get started!

The Brazilian Zouk Dance Steps Are Simple!

Below are the instructions for the leader or man; the follower or lady can move in the opposite direction. Shall we?

  • At the start, your feet should fall apart from each other without compromising comfort. Shift your weight to the right foot, ensuring the left foot just touches the ground. 
  • Take a long step to the back with your left and count ‘one.’ Pass on the weight to the left foot while letting the right brush through the floor.
  • Count ‘two’ as you hold your position. 
  • Count’ three,’ placing the right foot a little behind your left. This is a slight step to the back. Then transfer all your weight to the right foot. 
  • Count ‘four’ by transferring your weight to the front and onto the left foot. Your feet should remain this way as you bring your body forward. At the same time, the bodyweight should be transferred to the left foot. 
  • On count ‘five,’ use your right foot to take a long step to the front. Drag the left foot on the ground and close behind you. 
  • On count ‘six,’ hold your position. Your weight should focus on your right foot while the left foot should remain behind.
  • Take your left foot slightly forward on the count of ‘seven.’ Be sure to shift your weight to the left foot as the right foot remains behind you. 
  • Count ‘eight,’ and transfer your body’s weight onto the right foot. This is while leaving the left foot to be free for movement and return to count ‘one.’
  • At beat 8, you should be back at your starting position. The pattern doesn’t change and commences by stepping back with the left foot!

Why Is The Brazilian Zouk Dance Becoming People’s Favorite?

Suits any music

Perhaps one of the superiorities of this dance is it works perfectly with any music. From hip hop to trance, Zouk dancing is for all. The Zouk rhythm is all you need to activate those veins and foster relaxation. 

The flow

Zouk lovers are undoubtedly addicted to the unique flow. Kizomba may have certain similarities with Zouk, but the latter still tops the former with flowing sensuality. It features a fiery passion and allows expression. It’s as if each step is a piece of a narrative. Maybe your narrative!

No structuring

With Zouk, the sky’s the limit since there are no limitations to what your creativity can do. You can improvise this dance to your liking. Dance to the fast or slow beats of your drum, literally! There is no standard tempo or beat. You just go with your inspiration. Still, this is after knowing your way around the beats and styles. Remember that you have to master the rules to break them like an artist!


We all love some fun, and Zouk features creativity, movement, athleticism, and improvisation at every stride you make to a new level. Saying it is fun is almost like an understatement; it’s indescribable. Just watching it stirs emotions and feelings; how about dancing to it? Think of those amazing tilts with your partner. There is a body connection between partners, moving in one direction and creating a distance where needed.

You may not need to hit the gym after all!

Zouk is fun, but there is an athletic aspect to it. It is especially true for the tilted movements that engage your core, orientation, and balance. Some moves call for the leg and core strength. So, what if you are new? The hunger to get it right and repeated exposure are the two ingredients for a delicious zouk dance.
