A sensual dance originating in Brazil, Brazilian zouk has its roots in lambada - the “forbidden dance” from the late 80’s. Over time, it has evolved to include elements from ballet, hip hop, west coast swing and various other dance styles. Body isolations & rolls, spins on various axes, connecting in close holds and “head rolls” are all common parts of this dance.
