*** BIOGRAPHY ***
27 years ago in Brazil at the peak of the Lambada dance craze, Lambada captured Gilson’s heart. In the years that followed, Gilson acted as one of the founding fathers of the dance we now call LambaZouk and has dedicated his life to strengthening and expanding the LambaZouk community world wide.
Two years after falling in love with this dance, Gilson introduced LambaZouk to Argentina were he along with his partner started a successful Brazilian nightclub in Buenos Aires called “Porto Seguro”. There they taught the dances we know and love: LambaZouk, Forró, Samba de Gafieira, and Axé. He also started Brazilian and LambaZouk parties that have become internationally recognized in the most famous club in Buenos Aires, “Maluco Beleza”. To this day, Buenos Aires remains among the strongest LambaZouk communities in the word.
After establishing Lambazouk in Argentina, Gilson moved to Europe to continue his dream of expanding LambaZouk around the world. Since then Gilson has taught and performed at countless festivals in countries all over the world including: Spain, Russia, South Africa, Israel, Australia, Japan, and many more in Europe, South America, and the Mediterranean.
Simply put, Gilson is without a doubt among the most experienced and dedicated LambaZouk teachers in the world, and his passion for this dance is enlivening.
We are honored to welcome Gilson to Seattle for the very first time April 12th-20th of 2018 for a week full of workshops, private lessons, parties, and energía!!!
