Zouk in Zurich

Zouk came to Zurich around 2006, it has since steadily grown and become an integral part of the dancing community here. Currently there are 5 active dance schools teaching Zouk, and 1-2 dancing events every week! 

The dance school DanceZouk.ch was founded by Eric Fehr in 2013. Some of the things that set DanceZouk apart are a teaching methodology focused on solid technique and a great location since 2018, 1 minute walk from Central station. Our students learn in small groups, providing a more individual learning experience.

So far Zouk hasn’t yet been discovered by the large masses and is growing mostly by word of mouth, almost entirely ignored by the media. This has created a rather unique scene that is warm and friendly, welcoming all newcomers. Many zoukers (zouk dancers) actively travel around the world to meet other dancers and to practise their skills!

Zouk's origins

Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance originating from Brazil. Also known as Zouk-Lambada, the dance is a descendant of Lambada, the music & dance style that swept over the world like a storm in the late 1980’s. But the origins are even deeper in the past, in the dance Carimbò, which developed around the 15th century out of the mix of African, Portuguese and Native American cultures and dances.

Zouk offers a wide variety of music, full-body communication and movement, a space to express all your emotions without words.

Brazilian Zouk is characterized by the dancers’ undulating bodies and the girls’ flowing hair. Depending on the style of Brazilian Zouk, you can see a close connection embrace and long graceful steps, strong hip movements, body isolations and upper-body torsions, wild spins and whip-like head movements. While the dance is often called sensual, it is not sexual nor erotic. It is danced by people of all ages in night clubs, dance schools and events around the world!

Like many dance styles, Brazilian Zouk is ever evolving. There are a few different lines or styles of Brazilian Zouk, the main four derivations at the moment (April 2015) being ‘Lambazouk’, ‘Traditional Zouk’, ‘Neo Zouk’ and ‘Mzouk’.
