About us

We are delighted to present Ecole de Danse Zou.

Ecole de Danse Zou was established in 1950 by Serge Valentino GRISEL, who had previously taught at Académie des Maîtres de Danse de France.
He was twice Rock’n’Roll World Champion.
He was passionate about teaching and relished being on stage, both of which helped école de danse ZOU to acquire considerable international renown.

The school is nowadays managed by his son, Julien Grisel, who obtained: his dance teaching diploma (diplôme de Professeur/Maitres de danse) from Académie des Maîtres de Danse de France in 1976 (thus becoming the youngest person to obtain the title in Europe) and his Rock’n’Roll World Champion title in 1978

& by his grandson Kevin Serge Grisel
