about Sam & Javi:

Samantha Ho

Sensual, Smooth and Innovative. These words not only describe Sam’s unique style of dance, but also her personality, and life motto. “What I love about dance, specifically zouk, is the ability for it to be versatile. It can be smooth and sensual, yet structured. It’s the thrill of thinking outside of the box, being able to add innovative movement through creativity and connection, that leaves you feeling exhilarated… and always wanting more. This way, we can pour our emotions, thoughts and passions into a dance.” A co-founder of Zouk Dubai/Zouk M.E in 2009, Sam was the principal instructor in the UAE from 2009-2013, traveling regionally as well as internationally to teach and perform.
In March 2014, she started training with Javi Santos. Coming from different styles, they trained to find the best way to match and understand their differing styles and teaching methodologies.
Drawing techniques and styling from her background in Ballroom, Tango, and Salsa, Sam’s dream is not just to perform and teach zouk, but to help spread the love of the dance worldwide, and to see her students find their own inspiration and style.

Javi Santos

Since his childhood, Javi Santos had been practicing sports such as soccer, athletics and various forms of martial arts, including Taekwondo, Kendo and Aikido-Ki. This background enabled Javi to learn about partnership and respect, two important aspects in dance. An aficionado of bikes, computers and good food and wine, Javi never expected to be a dancer. At least until he discovered MZouk through Antonio Hernandez Sanchez in 2009. He quit Aikido so that he could quench his thirst for Zouk, and studied MZouk at Spiral Dance School, extensively learning for 3 years in all levels with Daniel and Leticia Estevez.
Curious, non-conformist and passionate. Three words that Javi uses to shape his perspective of Zouk. As a result, he resolved to recognise the different Zouk styles, such as NeoZouk, Zouk Flow, Soul Zouk, Traditional Zouk and LambaZouk, taking private classes with the creators/exponents of each style, to know the base and philosophy of each one.
Known for his creativity on the dance floor, Javi is recognised as a teacher with a strong technical base, yet fun and social, focusing on connection and musicality.
