Information about the dance teachers:

Anecia has been dancing Zouk and other social dances since 2014, the same year she graduated as a Registered Physiotherapist. At the beginning of 2018 she founded the "lead&follow dance school" in Erfurt, where she has been offering weekly zouk lessons in the level system ever since and has been building the Erfurt zouk scene with great commitment. She is constantly improving her zouk skills. The main teachers in recent years have been Bruno Galhardo and Raiza Previato, with whom she has taken all 3 levels of the Bric system and completed a teacher's course with a successful exam. She is also the organizer of the successful Essential Rhythm Zouk Festival.

Kassio started couple dancing 16 years ago in a public school in Manaus - Brazil, and has ever since worked his way up, training his dance and teaching methods with some of the best zouk teachers of brazil. Being a studied physical education teacher he has methods beyond the standard „steps teaching“, and with 10 years of Zouk teaching experience in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguai, Chile, Portugal, Greece and Germany, he has now helped Hamburg´s Zouk scene to multiply since his arrival.
