  • “I am new to Brazilian zouk and I really enjoyed the classes Kadu and Larissa taught at the first ever Dubai zouk congress I was part of. I was able to follow their instruction even though I have never had any dance training. Thanks for sharing. I’m taking my first trip to Brazil and hope to put my new skills to good use.”

    Jonathan McGowens from Dubai – United Emirates
  • “Kadu and Larissa are without a doubt two of the world’s best and most highly regarded Brazilian zouk and samba de gafieira dancers. I am proud to say, they are part of my dancing inspiration today. Go K&L!”

    Oliver Pineda – Director, Latin Motion from Sydney – Australia
  • “I really enjoyed the online classes and I think these classes were sometimes a little clearer than the instruction videos in terms of explaining the timing. The difficulty grade was also spot on. I also enjoyed the little jokes. Made me smile every time I watched the videos.”

    Gerty Gielen from Auckland – New Zealand
  • “Estou aproveitando muito o módulo online classes for samba de gafieira. Acho que da forma que vocês estruturaram as aulas online ficou muito bom, fácil para aprender, explicações bem construtivas e as dicas que vocês dão me ajudam bastante. Obrigado Kadu e Larissa!”

    Leomar Antonio Ritter from Curitiba – Brazil
  • “K&L bring a special energy to every class that ensures everyone involved feels enthusiastic and happy about dance. Both teachers are able to give so many tips about both leading and following, styling and technique, which is always a bonus. When you join the classes at K&L Dance you really do feel like you are part of a close family of friends.”

    Sara Gerritsma from Brisbane – Australia
  • “I’ve been dancing Brazilian zouk for over two years now and I love taking the K&L classes at K&L Dance. Learning with Kadu and Larissa is truly inspirational, the classes are always amazing, the music is perfect and the moves that we learn are beautiful. I feel really privileged to be taught by two of the most outstanding zouk instructors in the world.”

    Emma Greenley from Brisbane – Australia
  • “I found the K&L Dance online classes to be extremely helpful. I love the simplicity and format you have for the online videos and I was able to learn a lot from it. Thanks for offering the online classes specially for dancers like me that don’t have the opportunity to learn from you on weekly basis.”

    Christine Schwartz from Seattle – USA
  • “Guys, you are amazing! Your workshops are so interesting and clear to understand that even the wooden man will start to dance! Your performance is the best Brazilian zouk show I’ve ever seen! Thank you once again for the job you have been doing in promotion of Brazilian zouk around the world!”

    Yaroslav Zhovnirenko from Kiev – Ukraine

    Alex de Carvalho – Director, Centro de danca Alex de Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro – Brazil
  • “I have been with Kadu and Larissa since they arrived in Australia and have loved them and their teaching techniques from day one.  I always look forward to my classes because not only am I learning great Latin moves but because we always have fun too. If you are overseas check their instructional DVDs or online classes.”

    Vikki Williamson from Brisbane – Australia
  • “Kadu and Larissa’s DVDs are so helpful and packed with practical tips and solid techniques. I have already learned so much from these DVDs and can always find something new to learn when I watch them. It’s not just the moves but also how the techniques, the attitude and the flow of energy all blend perfectly with the music.”
    Jennifer Yang from Brisbane – Australia
