I started latin dancing in 2017 and explored a few styles before finally hopping on the Zouk bandwagon with Cheryl Wu Dance studio in 2018.
Your favourite Zouk project thus far
It would have to be the William & Paloma choreography challenge that was performed at Zouk Sensation in 2019.
Why did you enjoy your 2019 flashmob performance so much?
It was it my first ever Zouk performance! On top of that, the project was stress-free and all about enjoying & having fun with the dance. Attached: Said performance!
What is your favourite part about Zouk/Zouk community?
Everyone in the community is so passionate about the dance. The community is also the most welcoming and genuine group of dancers I’ve ever known.

To up my social dancing game gah! Being able to fully enjoy the dance (and look good) on the social dance floor is definitely something I need to work on :p

I have so many zouk videos that I like! One of my faves would be the demo by Alex & Mathilde (Bermuda) from Brazouky 2019. Their demo in Madrid Zouk Bachata Congress 2019 (Morena) was really good too.
