Zouk a sexy and sensual dance that originated in Brazil is taking the World by storm. Zouk means "festival or party." Zouk Lambada, like many other couple dances (i.e. salsa, merengue, tango, jive, swing, samba, bachata, forro etc) has evolved into what it is today… one of the most beautiful Latin dance styles.

Myself, Lee El Gringuito first feel in love with Zouk after bringing Willem Engel to my Bachata Festival and later taking workshops with Kadu and Larissa from Brazil and Donna Wild from Australia. Our goal is to introduce the DC Metro area to Zouk-Lambada! Get ready for Sexy, Sensual Nights of Latin dancing and group events with members of the BachataMeetUp.com! Also referred to as Lambazouk, Lambada Zouk and quite simply as Zouk in Brazil, this modern version of the Lambada evokes the body and mind into a trance like state for the dancer, leaving the spectator mesmerised.

With the lush adopted tropical rhythms from the French Caribbean and Lusophone countries, Cape Verde and Angola (referred to as Zouk Love, the only name possible for these exotic sounds; other known names include Kizomba, Cabo Love and Kompa), the dance took on a whole new sensuality. Hailing from a seaside fishing turned tourist town Porto Seguro, Bahia Brazil, the dance was able to touch the rest of the world.

Zouk Lambada is a dance that is hitting dance-floors across the world.
It’s funky! It’s hot! It's sexy

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
