Zouk Family Meeting

Dear Zouk friends,

we have the pleasure to invite you to the 14th ZOUK-FAMILY-MEETING – pure dance edition which will take place from 31st May to 3rd June 2018! As always in the beautiful city of Dresden. Every day dancing till sunrise! We are already looking forward to spending this early summer weekend together with you, dancing and relaxing in a family atmosphere. This time, there will be no workshops. We focus on dancing and party the whole weekend!

On Thursday we start with the pre-party Just Sensual. Friday we dance Zouk outside and have a welcome picnic together at the Glockenpavillon next to the Elbe river where you have an amazing view of the Dresden oldtown. For Saturday and Sunday afternoons, we arranged for two open-air locations suited for dancing and chilling: On Saturday we‘ll be at the Puro Beach. And on Sunday, after the customary brunch in the resataurant Espitas, we spend the afternoon on the terrace behind the Lingner castle which also has an open-air pub where we can dance outside. The venue for the parties at night is the dance studio Sandana. For Sunday early evening we plan a sweet surprise. 😉

As a special, there will be free drinks during the time in dance studio Sandana.

Update for free drinks at 14th Zouk Family Meeting: We have great news! We extended our beverage range for you at the parties in dance studio Sandana:

water, cola, lemonade, juice, beer, wine, tea and coffee

The music will be brought to you by:  DJ JC (USA), DJ Alexx (Poland), DJ Brandon (Czech Republic), and from Germany: DJ Baui, DJ Ronin und DJ LionX.
