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 Competitions||1st Place||2nd Place||3rd Place||4th Place||5th Place||Additional|
|Tier 1 = 5-15||5||4||3||2||1||0|
|Tier 2 = 16-39||10||8||6||4||2||6th to 10th - 1 point|
|Tier 3 = 40+||15||12||10||8||6||1 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”.
