Latiff & Sepideh
Brazil Vienna & Ipanema Zouk

- ) BRAZILIAN ZOUK is a social partner dance born in Brazil, nowadays danced to Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop & other music containing the Zouk beats. Leading & Following in Zouk is executed not only by hands but also by connection between the bodies, what makes this dance so smooth, sensual & beautiful. Brazilian Zouk has become popular within a few years and continues to conquer more & more dancers from all over the world.

-) SAMBA DE GAFIEIRA is real Carioca. This means that our dance is originally from Rio de Janeiro. It's a couples social dance.They began to dance in places that were called gafieras. Thats why the dance was called samba de gafieira, which literally means "Samba from gafieira".
A new style of dance incorporates elements of the maxixe and the Argentine tango, and performed under the expensive heart of the Brazilian rhythms of the Samba. The dance quickly gained popularity in Rio and later spread across the country.
Over the years, samba de gafieira has acquired an amazing visual appeal due to unusual technique and acrobatic elements executed at a rapid pace but without sacrificing elegance.

-) FORRÓ is the most popular genre of music and dance in Brazil's Northeast, to the extent that historically "going to the Forró" meant simply going to party or going out. Regarding the music, it is based on a combination of three instruments (accordion, zabumba and a metal triangle). The dance however becomes very different as you cross the borders of the Northeast into the Southeast. As part of the popular culture it is in constant change. The dance known as college forró is the most common style between the middle-class students of colleges and universities in the Southeast, having influences of other dances like salsa and samba-rock.

The traditional music used to dance the forró was brought to the Southeast from the Northeast by Luiz Gonzaga, who transformed the baião (a word originated from baiano and assigned a warm-up for artists to search for inspiration before playing) into a more sophisticated rhythm. In later years, forró achieved popularity throughout Brazil, in the form of a slower genre known as xote, that has been influenced by pop-rock music to become more acceptable by Brazilian youth of Southeast, South and Central regions.
