Willem's love for Brazil began in 1999 with Capoeira, which developed into a love of Zouk which he devoted his life to. In 2004 he began teaching in Brazilian Zouk. In his classes, he concentrates on the technical mastery of both the ladies and the gentlemen, but always in a relaxed atmosphere and a while having fun in class.
Besides giving lessons, Willem also teaches and performs worldwide, at festivals and conferences in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Suriname, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Spain and England. In the Netherlands, his dance school specializes in Brazilian Zouk classes in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Leiden.
