Antilles How to dance Zouk Launched on the 80's by Kassav group, Zouk mixts traditional antillese music with techno and disco. Zouk is danced tight with a partner on a 4/4 music. Steps are trampled on the spot with an african-type pronounced hip-swing. Zouk is rather close to Merengue but partners stay sticked together during the whole dance. There are various trends : Zouk love, Zouk R'n'B, Ragga-zouk, Lambada-zouk.
