Austin ZOUK and Inspired Movement are happy to ANNOUNCE the return of the amazing instructors from Brazil Leonardo Bilia & Catherine Pereira for their next series of Melody ZOUK workshops (with a flavor of Tango and Zouk fusion)


Leonardo and Catherine, both Brazilians, have been working together since 2011, with a special focus on Zouk and Argentine Tango. Recently, they were recognized as “Top 5 Best Teachers at ‘Las Vegas Kizomba, Bachata, Zouk e Salsa Festival 2016’”.

They have been traveling throughout the United States teaching Brazilian Zouk and Tango. Lately, they were present as Instructors at the biggest Festivals and Congress such as Washington DC Zouk Festival, Fall for Zouk (NYC), New York City Zouk Festival, Las Vegas Zouk Festival, San Francisco Zouk Festival, Get Your Zouk On (Montreal-CAN), New Jersey BK Festival, Boston Brazil Dance Festival, and several Bootcamps around Austin, San Diego, Riverside, and more.

Leonardo has over 19 years of dance experience, presenting classes in zouk, tango, samba, forró and many others, has taught around 16 countries. In Brazil, he studied and was trained by the greatest Brazilian master Jaime Aröxa, and others. He lived in Argentina where he studied Tango with the greatest names, such as Juan Carlos Copes, Sebastian Arce & Mariana Montes, Chicho & Juana, Javier Rodrigues & Geraldine Rojas and many others.

After his graduation in Busines, he opened his own Dance School in Campinas, Brazil, in 2006. His school was known as a Dance Center, offering not only Brazilian Social Dances as Zouk, Samba, Forró, but Argentine Tango, Salsa, Ballet, Jazz Dance, Hip Hop, Stiletto, and many others. Besides, he had prepared a great amount of couples for their wedding dance routine, and special events. He was awarded the Best Dance teacher for 5 years in a row, between 2011-2015.

Catherine is graduated in Biological Sciences, with Education-Teaching Degree and Master Degree in Biochemistry. She is a Ballet dancer for over 20 years, over 10 years of teaching experience. She worked as a professional ballet dancer in São Paulo, traveling and performing throughout Brazil.

She has won two Best Ballerina awards around Campinas, achieved the best grade in the Exam of the National School of Cuba in 2013 placed in São Paulo and she was the Principal of a Ballet piece in 2014.

Catherine has started her Brazilian Couple Dances and Latin Dance studies with Leonardo Bilia in 2010, being trained by him in all styles. Right at the beginning, she was invited to join the Leonardo Bilia Dance Company, performing and competing in the Zouk, Salsa, Samba, and Tango team. Thoughtfully they analyze body movement, investigate the lead and follow techniques. Applying their skills in teaching, helping students to absorb information according to their own perceptions and life experiences.
