Our very own Gabriel De CB is competing in the Advanced J&J at the Worlds tonight at 6 PM CST! It *should* be livestreamed on instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/brazilianzoukworlds/

🌠🍀BOA SORTE, GABRIEL!! 🍀🌠

❓ What is a J&J?
💡 J&J, or "Jack and Jill" is an improvised social dance competion where you get paired randomly with your partner.

For the advanced division:

🌠1️⃣ Chairs are set up on two sides of the dance floor, one set for judges with the audience around or behind them, and one set for the competitors (one side is designated for leads the other for follows).

🌠2️⃣ Competitors are called out one by one and they take a seat,

🌠3️⃣ The emcee has the first lead (or follow) pick their partner via a random method (whether by hand or electronic).

🌠4️⃣ The couple improvises to part of one slow song and then part of one fast song, both of which are picked by the DJ.

The couples are scored based on how well they dance with their partner - the definition of a "social dance" competition! Competitors are competing for prizes and for official Brazilian Zouk Dance Council points.

It's so fun to watch! So get some friends together and have a watch party tonight. You won't regret it ^_^
