Dancer & Choreographer

I'm a teacher, a dancer and choreographer of nine types of dance (zouk, salsa, bachata, samba, bolero...) since 2003. I have a lot of experience in group classes, individual and international workshops.

I was born in Goiânia, Brazil. Since I was child, I liked to dance, I did jazz and ballet for 3 years. When I was 18 years old I discovered the ballroom dancing. I join the school in Goiânia and learned salsa, zouk, forró, bolero, tango and samba. I specialized in didactics with 6 courses at the Jaime Arôxa Dance School in Rio de Janeiro. In 2006 I opened my own dance academy, the Movimento Dance Company. In 2008 I went to Spain and learned Bachata and Cuban Salsa. I returned as a teacher at the Jaime Arôxa Dance School in Goiânia in 2009.

Now in New Zealand I have choreographed a student samba de gafieira performance for Casa do Zouk in 2016 and taught zouk at the Salsa Bay Festival in Tauranga. With more than 13 years of experience and studies I have a lot to contribute to dance in New Zealand.
