How & Why I started Zouk Sensation!
Background Story: Growing up, I've always had the privilege to attend numerous dance events featuring the world's best artistes. I am lucky to have parents who supported my passion for dance, often tagging along my dance trips with me, and I firmly credit my dancing to the opportunities I've been blessed with. My first major international dance festival (with over 1000 participants) was Salsa Asia Cruise 2009. I was 9 years old, and was an invited artiste for the event, alongside the best dancers in the world such as Johnny Vazquez, Magna Gopal (who gave me a huge hug <3), Jordan & Tatiana and Kadu & Larissa (their workshop was my first taste of Brazilian Zouk). What really impresses me the most in the most memorable events is the humility, kindness & warmth organisers/artistes/community display towards each other. I enjoy events so much more when I feel like part of a community. We kicked off the Sensation Series with Zouk Sensation with Alex & Mathilde in July 2017 in Singapore.

Dancing with Alex de Carvalho
The event was amazing, with dancers praising the intimate classroom setting we set up, allowing the workshops to feel more personal & welcoming. There is really no better feeling in the world than to spend a few days of intense workshops & learning from your idols =)
With the first successful event under our belt, we decided to host Zouk Sensation with William & Paloma!
Thus, Zouk Sensation - Singapore's First Brazilian Zouk Festival is born. Check out www.brazilianzouk.sg for our Brazilian Zouk events :D
