Evelyn’s career started in Romania (Transylvania), in her early years of childhood where so many young artists with exceptionally gifted bodies learned how to form out the body with discipline and extremities through rhythmic gymnastics. Such ability was surely satisfied, for the street dance during her childhood school years, where she also performed in dance teams and led diverse choreographies. Simultaneously, in her years as a professional Dental Technician, Evelyn experienced Salsa, instructed Zumba, Modern Dance, Ballroom, and Flamenco to increase her dance repertoire.Fortunately, in 2006 she was confronted with her destiny “Brazilian Zouk”, where she fell in love with the dance which has been her passion ever since. Over the years, while studying and working abroad within her professional dance career, Evelyn performed and taught in more than 30 countries all over the world. Evelyn partnered with many prolific Zouk leaders like Pasty, Adilio Porto, Mafie Zouker, Xandy Liberato and many more at international congresses. During this time, she also added Contemporary dance to her foundation as a Brazilian Zouk artist.According to Evelyn, dancing Zouk is, “Surrendering in the moment with a balanced mental and physical state, combining creativity through inner-beauty, while existing in harmony with the music”.Evelyn embodies a unique approach to dance – an art of moving, expressing and interpreting the music gracefully and fluently. Her talents inspire dancers around the world to express their dance from their hearts.Presently, Evelyn is still sharing her love and passion for the dance, gratefully combining the beauty of being in love with her forever thankful, inspirational and beloved husband Derrick.CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL THERE!!
