About the venue:
📍The elegant Verdi Club in San Francisco — a gorgeous and iconic Art Deco venue, is conveniently located right off the freeway in between San Francisco’s Mission District and Potrero Hill. Street parking is more available and safer than most neighborhoods in SF. That said, we still recommend that you keep your valuables with you.

📸 Please note that we occasionally take video and photos at our events.

About the Artists:

Talita Mesquita

Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Talita started her dance journey at 12 years old with belly dancing. She then went on to start dancing ballet and jazz when she was 14 years old. Talita started Brazilian Zouk in 2015 and was integrated into Rubia Frutuoso dance company in São Paulo (2015 - 2016). She further expanded into Contemporary and Lyrical Jazz from 2016-2018. Talita has been teaching Brazilian Zouk since 2019 in Philadelphia USA, contributing to the growth of the local Brazilian Zouk Scene. In 2022, Talita was integrated into Paulo and Luiza’s dance company. She has also trained lambada extensively with David/Deywylla, Ariel/Leticia, Leo Bruno, and Rhawann/Ingrid in Brazil. She's a multiple time BZDC Jack and Jill champion, currently competing in the Advanced JnJ division. Talita is excited to continue her dance journey with the San Francisco Zouk community!

Charles Onyeama

Charles comes from a background of over 15 years of solo/partner dance experience, including classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, modern, salsa, bachata, kizomba, and Brazilian zouk/lambada. Having competed, performed, and created work alongside some of the biggest names across these disciplines, Charles is always focused on embodying the essence of each individual style, while using that language to bring something uniquely personal to whoever his dance touches. Charles aims to both inspire and unlock something profound through each encounter, whether it be performance, competition, choreography, instruction, or a shared moment on the dance floor. For Charles, every opportunity in dance is an opportunity of creation, both external, and internal. He's been a member of the Bay Area Latin dance communities for over 15 years and is passionate about uniting our dance communities and sharing the essence of Brazilian Zouk!
