L&L are two young Brazilian Zouk teachers from São Paulo. With an organic and innovative approach, they promote studies that contribute to Brazilian Zouk reaching new levels. They have been studying social couple dances since 2012 and in 2015 they focused their specialization on Brazilian Zouk

Their mission is to contribute to a happier and more empathetic
society through art. They work to spread what they learn with
lightness and love.

Focusing on non-choreographic methods, our classes follow a constructivist model, where learning takes place through individual discovery. In our classes, we prioritize the sharing of tools, which allow dancers to express their individuality, while connecting to their partner and the culture of Brazilian Zouk.

Among our various theoretical studies are topics such as counterbalance, frame and connection, head movements and time distribution of the steps, resulting in technical discoveries that are shared with joy and passion.

Who are our classes for?

People who wish to expand their relationship with zouk through:

-Efficiency: Achieving the desired results in a smart and cohesive way.

-Comfort: Providing you and your partner with warm and pleasant movements.

-Esthetics: Materialize on your body the esthetics, plasticity, and form that you wish.

-Structure dominance: Understand and explore the communication structure of zouk and from there develop the freedom to express yourself.

– Culture: Connect deeply with the Brazilian zouk culture.

– Flow: Constantly find that magical moment when you disconnect from the world outside and maintain such concentration that time seems to disappear.

Yuri started his dance journey in Christchurch, New Zealand, dancing Ballroom at the age of 8. Over the course of 2 years, he qualified for silver medals in both Latin and New Vogue with high commendations for the NZ federation of dance teachers inc., along with many first, second, and third placings. Over the next 10 years he danced Ballroom intermittently while focusing on his schoolwork.

Yuri then went to the University of Canterbury, and it was there in 2015 that he discovered the University Dance Club, UCanDance, which reignited his passion for dance – this time in Street Latin styles such as Salsa, Bachata, and Rueda. This eventually led to his discovery of Brazilian Zouk which was taught as a 5-week specialty course. Seeing the artists’ final demo, he was immediately hooked and took on any opportunity to learn zouk – including participation in Christchurch’s contingent of the Worldwide International Zouk Day Choreography. During this time, he also joined Latin Fire – a Latin dance school in Christchurch, to further pursue Salsa, Bachata, and Cha Cha, as well as perform and compete with their team.

Soon after, with the opening of their new school Brazilian Beatz Dance Academy, Yuri joined Leo and Becky to study Brazilian Zouk, where he was eventually invited to join the Brazilian Beatz Team, and then the Teachers Team in 2017. Being a part of this Team at Brazilian Beatz gave Yuri the opportunity to not only study the Brazilian styles of dance such as Brazilian Zouk, Samba de Gafieira, Samba no Pe, Bolero, Forro, Soltinho and Funk, but also the opportunity to grow and develop his skills as a teacher. As well as this, Yuri has also been developing his skills as a DJ over the past few years – learning both how to mix and play music to any crowd, as well as studying the theory behind the rhythms of different dance styles.

Yuri has competed in Brazilian Zouk both nationally in NZ, and internationally in Australia and the USA. In 2018, he was awarded third place in the Novice category of the international competition Jack & Jill, from which he progressed to Intermediate. He then placed first in the team’s category with Brazilian Beatz, as well as first in the Brazilian Zouk open freestyle section with Kat Maxwell, both at the 2019 South Island Latin competition in NZ.

Yuri has an extreme eye for detail, logic, and problem solving. This, along with his many years of training with Leo and Becky, has given him a great passion in teaching dance – often giving emphasis to technique, musicality, and making any dance feel as natural and comfortable as possible.

Kat Maxwell ignited her passion for dancing in 2013 when she first discovered Brazilian Zouk. Already dancing Latin styles such as Salsa, Bachata and the Brazilian dance Samba De Gafieira since 2012 in Christchurch, she soon started training in Forro, Bolero, Soltinho, Funk, and Samba no Pe with Leo and Becky at Brazilian Beatz Dance Academy in Christchurch, NZ. She has since added Cha Cha and Contemporary as an addition to her repertoire.

This coupled with her training with Leo and Becky at Brazilian Beatz as their student since 2015, part of their team from 2016, and then as one of their teachers since 2017, Kat has extensive experience in teaching holistically, incorporating various learning styles into her pedagogy.


Training with Leo and Becky as part of their team at Brazilian Beatz has inspired her to take the skills and techniques she has learnt to competitions in New Zealand, Australia and Brazil. She taught at Leo and Becky’s Brazilian Zouk Intensive Training Event; RioBeatz in 2019 and 2021, and is looking forward to teaching there again in 2022, along with other events throughout NZ and Australia.

This trip saw her competing in the Rio Zouk Congress Intermediate Jack and Jill and completing her certificate in Renata Peçanha’s 2020 week-long Teachers Course. Since then, she has completed Kadu and Larissa’s Teachers and Judges training, and continues her mentorship with Leo and Becky, teaching, attending classes, and training every week.  As she believes that being a teacher means being a student for a lifetime.
