LA Zouk Congress & US Open 2015 (I'm on a boat)!

What a wonderful adventure to have taken part in.

LA Zouk Congress 2015 you rocked the boat!

Such a unique & lovely place to party with all the Zoukies!

Each and every year this congress becomes better and better! Cant wait for 2016. 

For us, this was a particularly special event as Island Zouk director's, Jonathan Troupe & Gigi Mak, entered in the US Zouk Open Competition.  Competing really has a way of challenging you in more then you will ever imagine! Our advice....Go for it!  

After spending just one week to prepare our show, we are happy as we could hope to have brought back the second place award home to Hawaii!!!  ;-) 

 Much more than awards or recognition however, we are grateful for the opportunity to dance, teach and be a part of the one and only LA Zouk Congress! 

Big thanks to the organizers and all the friends/family we made and reconnected with along the way!  




Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.- T. Alan Armstrong
