Lambada a 3 “At a friend’s birthday party I asked two friends to dance with me at the same time, I wanted to check out if it was possible to dance Lambada with two ladies, making different moves between them. What I found out was that it was not only possible, but actually lot of fun! On that same day, a couple of minutes later, I was combining dance moves and starting something that i had never imagined before. Nowadays, the “Lambada 3” is danced and appreciated in the lambada-zouk scene all over the world. A lot of people are becoming very interested in learning this Lambada style. It is very flattering for me to know that each day more people are having fun with this unique dance style.”
