Classes take place every Thursday at 8 p.m., and they last for one to two hours. Expert dance instructors teach groups the fundaments of Brazilian Zouk dance. The style incorporates a distinct rhythm pattern of two beats and a slow down beat, and dancers often add in turns and hand combinations. If customers schedule early, they can use their classes to prepare for New York City's annual Dance Parade, which is held Saturday, May 18. The event expects to draw more than 10,000 dancers.
In the mid 1980s, a new type of music and dance started to emerge in the Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadalupe. The style, named Zouk, was distinguished by its distinct rhythmic pattern: two quick beats followed by a slow down beat. ZoukFest NYC focuses on the Brazilian type of Zouk dancing. To date, it claims members across more than 50 countries throughout South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and more, with U.S. communities is cities such as New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Members and nonmembers alike regularly come together for dance classes and special events, including an annual dance parade held in New York City.
