Zouk Family Meeting

Dear Zouk friends,

It’s a crazy time for everyone and it looks like the social distancing regulations will continue this summer, and therefore in order to abide by these regulations we have no choice but to move our event to 24th – 27th of September. Undoubtedly, we feel sad that we are unable to celebrate with our Zouk family at the moment, due to government regulations.

For our September reunion, we will be working on and implementing measures and government regulations regarding COVID-19 in order to take care of our Zouk family.

Every ticket already purchased is 100% valid for the September Zouk Family Meeting.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

It’s our pleasure to invite you to ZOUK-FAMILY-MEETING “Special edition” from 24th to 27th of September 2020 in the beautiful city of Dresden!

What is special?
All drinks (beer, wine, juices, lemonades, cola, water, tea and coffee) are included as part of your pass for all 4 nights. Pass holders also get to 5 hours of workshops.

Who are the instructors and DJs?
This edition, we are delighted to welcome Jan and Saba & Deivson and Hellen from Berlin as our Zouk instructors. We are also happy to announce our DJ Team consisting of DJ Piter (Poland), DJ Baui (Germany), DJ Rõnin (Germany), DJ Fiddich (Germany) and LionX (Germany).

What is included in this event?
The Zouk Family Meeting starts Thursday evening with the warm up Zouk party.
On Friday we will have a dinner together at „Ristorante Ausonia “ followed by the Zouk party at dance studio Sandana.
The first workshops will be on Saturday afternoon with Jan and Saba.
After the workshops the social Saturday will be a trip with a traditional paddle steam boat, from Dresden baroque “Oldtown” to “Blasewitz”. Depending on weather conditions after the boat trip, we may stop by the German beer garden “Schillergarten”.
