About Adilio Porto

ADILIO PORTO (Dancer, Dance Teacher & Choreographer)
Adilio Porto has been working with dance since 1988. The start of his professional career in dance was marked when Jaime Aroxa invited him to enter Jaime’s Dance Academy in Botafogo (Rio de Janeiro), after seeing Adilio dance at the 1st Lambada competition at ’Roxy Roller’ (’Roxy Roller’ was the first place for Lambada dance in Rio de Janeiro).

He joined Jaime Aroxa’s dance company and started to work as a dance teacher at the academy. Adilio worked 10 years for Jaime and considers him as one of the best dancers in the world. He divides his dance career in two parts- before and after working with Jaime Aroxa.

After working with the Lambada dance, Samba de Gafieira, Bolero, Rock, Jive, Forro, Tango, Ballet , Contemporary, Adilio created the new Dance in Brazil, that he started to call Zouk. He started to spread the rhythm of Zouk Love all over Brazil. This turned out to be a great success for both him and Jaime and Jaime started new dance academies in several cities all over Brazil. Adilio was sent out in Brazil to teach the rhythm of Zouk Love.

Adilio has participated in a lot of different events, such as congresses, movies, television, theater, shows and at the Brazilian Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. The media and teachers in Brazil regard Adilio as the best dancer and teacher of Brazilian Zouk in the world.

Adilio has taught most of the Zouk teachers in Brazil what they know. The largest dance company specialized in Brazilian Zouk was owned by Adilio Porto and Renata Pecanha and is now managed by his former ex wife and ex dance partner Renata Pecanha.

Adilio currently works in Europe, Asia, Middle West and Australia. It is his goal to use his experiences from Brazil to make the knowledge of Brazilian dances grow. Adilio Porto has participated in organizations such as Zurich Zouk Congress, Sydney Zouk Festival and the Scandinavian Zouk Festival.

”Let’s think about dance and let’s get united so that all people that do not dance will get to know dance and the joy it can bring. Long live dance. Life is much happier when we are dancing.”
