Competitor information

Casa do Zouk is a Brazilian Zouk Dance Council (“BZDC”) Registry Event. As such, points are awarded to the winners and place getters (and possibly finalists) of our Jack & Jill Competitions. The BZDC records and tracks every competitor and these points are used to identify the category a person should compete in. There must be a minimum of five couples per category for points to be recorded.

Points will be recorded and tracked as follows:

Tier/# of Competitions1st Place2nd Place3rd Place4th Place5th PlaceAdditional

Tier 2 = 16-391086426th to 10th - 1 point
Tier 3 = 40+151210861 point all finalists

The guidelines for each category are set out on this page. If you want to enter a category for which you do not meet the entry requirements stated or want to change categories, you may submit a request by sending us an email with a brief explanation of the reason(s) for your request.

Jack & Jill competitions are designed to highlight skills in social Brazilian Zouk dancing and the ability to dance well with a variety of partners. Competitors enter as individuals, are randomly assigned partners and dance to music selected by K&L Dance Events. Male competitors must enter as “leaders” and female competitors must enter as “followers”.
