Autumn season is starting next week! First set of classes is already relaesed - we’re starting our August 15th with a 3-week beginner course on Tuesdays in Helsnki. If you're new to lambazouk or want to refresh your fundamentals this is the place to be! Invite your friends too - no previous experience or partner needed :)
Are you looking for great events to dance lambazouk?
In the global Brazilian zouk community there are lots of well known congress and festivals! Noora from Lambazouk Finland keeps a list of major events with all styles of Brazilian zouk in her Zouk The World blog's calendar. But if you're looking for festivals that are specifically 'lambazouk friendly' - meaning an event with a good amount of lambazouk workshops as well as lambazouk dancers & music in the parties - this list below is for you!
500 x thank you to the 500+ followers on our Facebook page!
We appreciate very much all the support we have gotten over the years. Dance has brought our lives so many experiences & friendships and we couldn't image our lives without it 💖 A lot of hard work is behind everything you see here (as some of you may know, and if you work with dance or are promoting something new you know it yourself from your personal experience)... and while we look to the past with gratitude and have many lessons learned, many new things are still ahead of us. Our 100% focus is on the future and on building a big & strong Lambazouk & Brazilian Zouk scene in Finland!
On 11 & 13 July we’ll have two lambazouk workshops to boost your dance skills. We’ve selected two very essential themes that will enhance your timing, frame & body control, connection with your partner, flow and bring more ‘lambazouk’ flavor to your dance skillset.
Note: Limited number of students (max 6 leaders + 6 followers)!! Secure your spot and pre-register asap by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes it's true - we're noe (back) on Instagram!!
Follow @lambazoukfinland for our best moments from the past, present and future! Ok, maybe not from the future(?) but it'll be fun for sure! You can also use our häshtäg (like we say it in Finnish) #lambazoukfinland to join our Insta journey.
Starting tomorrow we have a very special Lambazouk ahead of us! See schedule below - we'll update it here if & when more happenings are confirmed. For the latest info always remember to follow our announcements on our Facebook page.
This week we were practicing 'chicote' on our beginner class. This is one of the classic ways to accent the "breaks" in music and definitely one of the main signature moves of Lambazouk - many reasons to love the chicote and we do LOVE it! We were happy to see a lot of focus and patience among our students on this simple yet powerful & complex move :)
You may have heard the rumors... and it is true! We will have another guest star at this June's special Lambazouk weekend with Ricardo Ferrari & Anna Claudia Leite: Danniel Navarro!! Don't let the picture fool you, this charming dancer & actor all the way from Brazil will be sure to smile his way to your hearts.
