WELCOME to the official Facebook event page for Columbus Zouk’s BRAZILIAN ZOUK SUMMER SIZZLER with Iago & Vanessa! 

We are a community-based zouk collective focused on building connection and genuine friendships through this amazing social dance, growing as dancers and as humans, and sharing our love of Brazilian zouk with our city! 

Iago Hassuike and Vanessa Meirelles are professional dancers from São Paulo - Brazil. They have been specialists in Brazilian Zouk and Lambada since 2018. They received many awards in their career like: World Lambada Championship, National Brazilian Zouk Championship and others. Their teachers were: Ariel & Letícia, Philip Miha, David & Deywylla, Rafael Machado, Daniel Darbello. They are one of the couples from the group "Geração São Paulo" and teach regular classes, study groups, workshops and in congresses all around the world. They have received many awards from championships in their specialities and in academic dances. Iago, with an experience in pedagogy since 2016 and Vanessa with more than 15 years of experience in dance styles like Jazz, ballet and contemporary, together make a united couple and complete each other in a special way! With a dance based on a mix of Lambada and Brazilian Zouk and made by happiness and closeness, their dream is to share their love and passion for this art with everyone around the world!
