First Scandinavian Zouk Congress

First Scandinavian Zouk Congress

The rainy smalltown in Sweden had a very well organised congress with two days packed with workshops and three nights of parties...

And we did indeed terrorise the cruise passangers with zouk where ever they played something zoukable!

At the congress we were 14 Finnish zoukers there, with about 120 participants altogether.
