Introducing Cloud 9 Zouk and it's enthusiastic and charismatic founder, Behrouz. He runs free introductory beginner level classes in Zouk style at his friendly social parties each fortnight. On behalf of Behrouz, I'd like to cordially invite you to come to sample the next best thing at the upcoming Cloud 9 Zouk party on Saturday 7th April 2018.

There is a Zouk dance scene in Brisbane? Am I pronouncing Zouk correctly? What exactly is Zouk, by the way? All very valid questions you have there. Allow me to elaborate....

Zouk (pronounced 'zook') is a sensual and passionate dance that originates from Brazil. Based off a Latin dance style, called Lambada, it has evolved to become an intensely beautiful form of self-expression (let alone, form of easy exercise). Of recent years, Zouk has adopted elements of the more common dance flavours, such as, tango, hip-hop, jazz, ballet, contemporary and Latin dance styles. This evolution allows dancers to connect easier with their dance partners whilst enjoying remixes of the Top 40 Countdown (That's right - Learn to dance with coordination and confidence to the music you love).

All it takes to learn is two feet be it two left, two right or a right and a left foot - you're guaranteed to enjoy yourself at a Cloud 9 Zouk party. Behrouz and his team consciously strive to create a sense of community amongst dancers and for everyone to feel welcome no matter what level. This means that you, as a newbie, can rest assured that your first taste of Zouk (and every bite, thereafter) will be a pleasurable one.
