Since 2009 Zouk has been an integral part of all the regional dance festivals, Zouk Dubai was giving workshops and performed as couples as well as a team performance. In 2011 we organized our first 1 day event in Dubai with international Zouk artists and local dance instructors teaching Salsa, Kizomba and Tango as well. It was so successful, that in 2012 we expanded to a full-grown 3 days congress at Hilton Ras Al Khaimah. We had many international attendees mainly from Europe and Russia visiting us for a week, who besides the dancing enjoyed sightseeing and a diving trip to Musandam as well.
In 2013 we aim even higher and refined our concept, the festival will spread over an entire week and the whole UAE. The welcome and closing party on Tuesdays at Noche Bar, Hilton Capital Grand Abu Dhabi. The pre- and after-party on Wednesday and Sunday will be held at Savage Garden, Capitol Hotel in Dubai. On Thursday we will check-in at Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Hotel and visit the Al Hamra Fort & Beach Resort for an amazing beach party with water sports, live BBQ cooking stations, lounge tents with shisha and dance workshops at La Chalet Beach Restaurant. After 10 pm international DJ’s will play the hottest Zouk & Latin tunes for us to dance till early morning. On Friday and Saturday there will be intensive dance workshops, each 90 minutes long, from 11 am till late afternoon. Classes will be conducted in 3 rooms parallel each dedicated to one level from beginners to advanced. We have 15 amazing international artists and DJ’s from Brazil and Europe as well as all our regional Zouk instructors and DJ’s from Oman and the UAE.
Thursday and Friday night parties will feature some amazing dance shows as well as special themes on how to dress up. This year for the first time we also offer a dedicated Salsa floor with 3 of Dubai’s best Salsa DJ’s. On Saturday evening we plan to visit a desert camp for camel riding, henna painting etc. and finish with a special Arabian themed dance night back at Hilton ballroom till the morning hours. Due to the amazing feedback from many dancers and other organizers, we have already 30% registrations from Europe and the rest of the world, and 20% from other GCC countries making it a truly international dance festival to meet new people and make new friends that share the same passion for dance.
