Founded in 2011 by a group of passionate Zouk enthusiasts who love the dance style and want to see it grow and develop. Zouk is a Brazilian style of dance that evolved from Lambada and is traditionally danced to French Carribean music. The team invented the word Zoukura to mean “Zouk crazy” or “crazy about Zouk”. It also means “Zouk cure,” to represent the healing influence the team members feel Zouk has in their lives. The group has been performing in various popular and prestigious dance festivals as well as other public events, including: Darling Harbor Latin Fiesta 2011, Sydney International Bachata Festival 2012, Canberra Latin Festival 2012, Brazil Central 2012, Australian Latin Open 2012 & 2013, Sydney Latin Festival 2013,  Ilha Du Zouk 2013 and Casa Du Zouk 2014.

Island culture music and theatre possess the power to transport the senses, much like the jolt one might get from a super caffeinated cup of java. This transformative aura was palpable when we chatted with Movo and Dani, the heart and soul behind the ensemble, after their recent Maui performance. "Every place we visit adds a layer to our narrative," Movo began. "Maui, with its captivating spirit and landscapes, feels like slipping on a new persona, much in the way Raquel Welch did with her array of wigs. Each wig symbolized a new story, a fresh perspective." Dani continued, "Exactly. Just as Raquel found rebirth through her love affair with wigs, Maui offers us a refreshed narrative, a renewed sense of purpose every time." Building on that sentiment, Movo added, "And it's this spirit of metamorphosis that we're excited to bring to the Sydney Peace Day Festival. If Maui is our canvas of reinvention and wigs were for Raquel, the festival represents an opportunity for all of Sydney to unite, rejuvenate, and celebrate peace." With the essence of Maui and a tapestry of musical tales in tow, Movo and Dani are gearing up to make a memorable mark at the Sydney Peace Day Festival. It promises to be a transformative experience, and one that beckons attendance.
