Zouk Weekend with Monika & Dominik in Berlin

Monika and Dominik started their dance journey at the age of 12, and today they are recognized as pioneers of Brazilian Zouk in Katowice (Poland), the city where they currently live. Since 2014, they have been dedicated to building a community of Brazilian Zouk dancers in their hometown.
In 2021, they took and passed the certification exam in the MAC Project, a course on the methodology of teaching Brazilian Zouk created by Alex de Carvalho, in Paris. This achievement made them the first certified Brazilian Zouk instructors in Southern Poland.
In 2022, they broke another barrier by becoming the first Polish couple in the history of Brazilian Zouk to teach fully in Portuguese at a festival in Brazil. Monika and Dominik taught at two festivals in total – the Summer Zouk in Rio, organized by Renata Peçancha herself, and the International Zouk Congress (IZC), the largest festival in São Paulo. They were also invited to teach in Hanoi and Montreal, becoming the first European couple in the history of Brazilian Zouk to teach in Vietnam and Canada. At the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023, Monika and Dominik returned to Brazil once again to teach Brazilian Zouk. As one of the few European couples to do so, they taught once more at the International Zouk Congress (IZC) and for the first time at the Ramalhos Zouk Festival. Their passion for Brazilian Zouk continues to take them around the world, spreading their love for this dance wherever they go.
Over the past few years, they have had the privilege of teaching Brazilian Zouk in various countries such as the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Scotland, and the Czech Republic.
In Poland, Monika and Dominik have helped to organize the first editions of the Silesian Zouk Festival and the Katowice Zouk Meetup to grow the community in Katowice. They seize every opportunity to spread their passion for Brazilian Zouk among new people. Their ultimate goal is to showcase the beauty of Brazilian Zouk and inspire more people to fall in love with this dance. During their classes, they focus on technique, musicality, countless movement possibilities, and the fun that comes with dancing Brazilian Zouk.
