Who are we?

Edson Modesto Jr is the newest addition to the Helsinki zouk family! Edson is a professional dance teacher who just moved to Finland from São Paulo, Brazil, the mecca of Brazilian dance. This charming guy is known for his big smile and his effortless & clear leading - which makes the ladies smile even bigger. Edson has been dancing Brazilian zouk for 13 years. He has been teaching dance in well-known Brazilian dance schools (Cia Terra, Pulsart, Núcleo de Dança) and at several events in Europe and US. Among other things this multitalented dancer is an All Star level dancer & teacher in West Coast Swing.

Noora Staf is the co-founder of Lambazouk Finland. She started dancing 12 years ago, immersing herself with different urban dance styles. Her first touch of Brazilian dance was samba, which eventually lead her to zouk in early 2011 and it immediately became her life passion. Since then, she has been learning intensively around the world, always curious to try new things and to know every final detail - and she’s now passing on all this knowledge to lambazouk students in Helsinki on her weekly classes.

Edson & Noora are looking forward to bringing the best of lambazouk to Finland!
