  • 3 Key Points:
    • The roots of Brazilian zouk can be traced back to the dance of lambada.
    • Brazilian zouk began using the zouk name unknowingly of what was known as zouk in the Caribbean. The name was chosen because the music they were dancing to was zouk.
    • Brazilian zouk pulls from a lot of different dances such as, but not limited to, bolero, samba de gafiera, hip hop, salsa, contemporary, and tango.
