BRAZILIAN ZOUK PROGRAM
Saeko Hinomoto is a New York City based Brazilian Zouk and Lambada social dancer and instructor. Saeko has been involved with Brazilian Zouk and Lambada since 2008, when she was introduced to the dance by her older sister, and then began studying with Juni Shimizu of Tropical NY. Saeko continued her training with Kim Rottier (ZoukNY), Ry’el and Jessica (ZenZouk), as well as learning from and assisting many international instructors.
She loves everything about Brazilian Zouk and Lambada; the social dancing aspect, connections that are made, and playing with and creating movements alongside another person through music. Saeko sees every dance as unique and special, is continuously learning, and doesn’t go a week without taking part in the creative art of dance.
The art of choreography is also a passion of Saeko’s and she has been a part of many dance performance teams including Tropical NY, ZoukNY, ZenZouk, YoZouk, Zouk Babes, and many more. Since she started to train and partner with Vinny (Vinicius de Souza), they are teaching regularly in the local dance scene, as well as other North America dance events. Dance brings Saeko so much joy and allows her to meet so many amazing people throughout the years.
