ZoukRush Aug 2017 with Arthur & Layssa

This August, Zouk Dance Academy is very excited to bring back the smooth and sensuous stars of Brazilian Zouk, Arthur and Layssa, to Singapore! This will be Arthur’s third trip to Singapore, and Layssa’s fourth!

During their stay here, Arthur and Layssa will be conducting 8 workshops and partying for 3 nights! They are well known in Brazil, Australia, and most recently, the United States. They have been invited to return to the U.S. every year, since 2014. With their friendly personalities and groovy, sensuous style, it’s no wonder that they are favorites in many cities around the world.

Spaces for the workshops are limited! The moves will not be covered in the regular Brazilian Zouk classes, so don’t miss out on your chance to learn some important techniques. Register for your ZoukRush passes today!
