Olaya & Papagaio

Olaya Dendê was born in Barcelona, Spain and has been dancing since she was 4 years old. In 2000 she fell in love with the world of Brazilian dance and immediately started performing and teaching. Always willing to learn, she’s combined her University studies together with Fitness instructor qualification and Dance Training (Ballet, Contemporary and Jazz). Olaya is considered one of the best Brazilian zouk teachers, known for her colorful metaphors and clear explanations that simplify even the most difficult moves! Her passion is dancing and teaching, doing anything for her students learn how to dance well, spreading the love and energy of dancing!

Gabriel Torres, known by his Capoeira name Papagaio, was born in Recife and spent his childhood in Fortaleza, Brazil. In Spain he trained as a Physical Education Monitor and later as a qualified Physiotherapist. Apart from being well known as a “Capoeirista”, he is a DJ and teacher of Lambazouk in Barcelona. He pioneered the promotion of lambazouk music and classes in Barcelona, and in 2005 began giving classes together with Olaya. Gabriel is a very creative dancer, he loves to dance moving in space and all his energy goes into the dance floor.

Olaya & Papagaio have given lambazouk workshops and shows at congresses all around the world and are part of the organising team for DansaBrasil congress in Barcelona. They also work on several projects and have classes all year long at DancEmotion School in Barcelona.
