Lambazouk events around the world

Lambazouk events around the world

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!

Lambazouk Finland in Brazil

Lambazouk Finland in Brazil

Lambazouk Finland Team has now been reunited in BRAZIL! Noora & Jaakko are now busy planning the coming year and - of course - dancing Lambazouk!!!

But Noora & Jaakko are not the only Finns right now in Brazil. As has already become a tradition, a group of Finnish zoukers travel every year to the home of Brazilian zouk to spend the New Year, see the country, visit zouk congresses and train with the local dance schools. This past week we have been visiting São Paulo - one of the zouk capitals of the world - and training with Ricardo Ferrari and his team at Movimento Lambazouk.

 

Lambazouk Finland tiimi on juuri kokoontunut BRASILIASSA! Noora & Jaakko intoa puhkuen paraikaa suunnittelee tulevaa vuotta ja - tottahan toki - tanssii lambazoukia!!!

Mutta Noora & Jaakko eivät ole ainoat suomalaiset par'aikaa Brasiliassa. Jo perinteeksi on muodostunut, että joukkio Suomi-zoukkereita matkaa joka vuosi zoukin kotimaahaan viettämään uutta vuotta, näkemään Brasiliaa, ottamaan osaa zouk kongresseihin ja treenaamaan paikallisissa tanssikouluissa.

Viimeisen viikon aikana olemme vierailleet São Paulossa - yhdessä maailman zoukpääkaupungeista - ja treenanneet Ricardo Ferrarin ja hänen Movimento Lambazouk ryhmänsä kanssa. Kuvia pian tulossa Facebook-sivuillemme!
