Ian Pacheco Biography:

Ian Pacheco started his artistic life when he was 17 studying cinema, theatre and dance. Started in the cinema, but couldn't hold himself behind the camera, leading him to acting classes, interpretation for tv, and Latin dances, including Zouk. Later, focused entirely on dance, he took classes of ballet, jazz, modern and contemporary dances. In 2012, at only 23 years old, he became a business man, opening his own Dance Center along with the creation of the Ian Pacheco's Dance Company teaching Zouk, salsa, Forro and Samba. 

Since then, he has traveled to Canada and Europe teaching Zouk to the students of the world, and most recently, at the LA Zouk Congress 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

For him, the dance unites and transforms people's lives for the better.

CARLOS DA SILVA

Carlos started dancing intensively twenty years ago, among the first dances, which he found love for, belonged Brazilian Funk, Samba de Gafiera, Bolero and the swinging Foxtrot. After many dance performances and experiences, he decided to expand his repertoire also with salsa and bachata.

"I had an opportunity to move to the Czech Republic and introduce Brazilian culture here in Prague in 2006. Together with Sofie Toris we opened the first ever Brazilian dance studio and began teaching Zouk, Samba de Gafiera, carnival samba, salsa, Bolero, Tango and many other dynamic and passionate Brazilian dances.

Ever since 2010, I organize the Prague Zouk Congress that is attended by more and more fans of Brazilian culture from around the world annually. Each year, more than 600 dance enthusiasts dedicate the whole week to zouk and samba".

FERNANDA DA SILVA

Fernanda's dance career started ten years ago mainly with Samba de Gafiera and Forro in Brazil. Her grace and style has captured the imagination of dancers around the globe.

"I found a great passion for dancing so I started to learn also other dances such as zouk, bolero, salsa or Swinging foxtrot.

It wasn’t long before I was offered a chance to become a member of Brazilian show dance group in the Czech Republic and I have been following Carlos da Silva in his professional career ever since. Together we visit international congresses where we teach and perform as well as organize Prague zouk Congress in Prague".

Lena Bio:
Lena has just returned from a world tour with Brazouka, the first internationally touring zouk dance company. She was the only American dancer in this eclectic company of Brazilians and Europeans. She played a soloist role of contemporary dance as well as zouk, lambazouk, samba de gafiera, and samba no pe.
She was first introduced to Zouk Lambada in 2009 when she met Shani Mayer in Los Angeles. She loved the new challenge of dancing by follow and lead, which has lead to a passion for a dance that was unlike anything she had felt previously. She continued to study from many international instructors, including Mari Hodges, Pablo Schmoller, Romina Hidalgo, and Leo Bruno from Brazil. She also attended the Berg’s International Zouk Lambada Congress in 2011 and 2013 held in the birthplace of the dance, Porto Seguro, Brazil. 

Lena was trained in classical and contemporary ballet, jazz and modern dance since the age of 7 across the U.S., Europe and Japan including;

Fumie Kanai Modern Ballet School, Tokyo, Japan
Westside Ballet Academy, Santa Monica, California, USA
Rock School for Dance Education, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
American Ballet Theater, New York City, New York, USA
San Francisco Conservatory of Dance, San Francisco, California, USA
Confidance Dance Intensive, Amsterdam, Netherlands
University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Ballet from the University of Utah with an emphasis in performance and teaching. She has danced for companies including Utah Ballet, Dreamscape Dance Theatre, and Daurden Contemporary Dance theatre, as well as various projects in San Francisco and Los Angeles.


She has taught group and private zouk classes for the last 3 years, as well as classical ballet for ages 5 to adult for the last 8 years. She is also a physical therapist with focus in Pilates and dance rehabilitation.
