Val and Vanessa love to share their extensive knowledge about dance and zouk particularly with their students around the world. They are teaching at many zouk festivals and congresses but it is often not easy to pass a lot of information during one hour workshops. That is why you can join some of the Zouk Needs You intesive courses with 12/15/30/40 hours of zouk classes with them.

Zouk Needs You (ZNY) is a brand which Val Clemente started using to promote Brazilian zouk. It has evolved into a methodology under which he has been teaching Brazilian zouk in Brazil and around the world. Together with Vanessa they have been improving this methodology and you can find many events worldwide where they teach ZNY workshops and more intensive bootcamps. They are also training a group of dedicated dancers who are teaching Brazilian zouk using this methodology.
