About Zoukphoria

Zoukphoria is a community led by Ebonie Lee, Eddie Wang, Samuel Sandoval and Bryn Nugent, centered around bringing Brazilian Zouk dancing to Brooklyn. WHAT IS BRAZILIAN ZOUK? brazilian zouk /brəˈzilyən ˈzük\/ noun 1. a fusion of Brazilian Lambada-inspired dance, Caribbean music + international innovation 2. a social dance style characterized by bodywaves, dynamic spirals + infectious beats Brazilian Zouk is a couples dance descended from the Lambada in Brazil. The name Brazilian Zouk is used to distinguish the dance from the Caribbean Zouk dance, which is historically related to, but very different from the Lambada.
