Lambazouk is an energetic yet sensual partner dance, which was created in Porto Seguro, Brazil after the world's forbidden dance Lambada.DescriptionLambazouk is the style created in Porto Seguro, Brazil after Lambada. 

This dance is characterized by high energy (energia) and feel good attitude (alegria). Although it is a fast and energetic dance, it flows smoothly and the moves are continuous and rhythmic, and dancers follow circular movements as they relate to each other. One way in which the present Porto-Seguro style differs from the original Kaoma-like Lambada style, is that the they have removed wiggling shoulder movements (also sometimes seen in Cuban-style salsa). Instead the shoulders are kept fixed while the hips move (swing) to create a sensual effect. A number of movements have been added to the modern version of this dance (many created by Didi Santos of Brazil). Porto Seguro style is so prominent in Lambazouk that the two are often considered synonymous, not to mention, even the most celebrated Porto Seguro dancers call themselves Lambazouk dancers.
Lambazouk is characterized by the following movements:

Cabeça.
Boneca.
Chicote.
Cambre.

Lambazouk is danced to rhythmic, up-tempo music (tempo is generally fast or medium, rarely slow). Kizomba music is very popular in Lambazouk owing to its rhythm and pace. Because the music faster, and head movements are more sophisticated and done more often, dancing Lambazouk requires better technique and timing in order to perform head movements without injuries.

Lambazouk is mainly danced in Porto Seguro, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Argentina, Spain, Israel, UK, US, Israel, Japan & recently also in Malaysia. LambaZouk is also evolving to include more modern movements. It is also not uncommon (lately) for dancers to switch fluently between these dancing styles during a single Zouk music song.
