CLASS INFORMATION

You are not a beginner anymore!

Don't worry, we’ve got you covered! As well as our next level Beginner Plus, Foundations & Intermediate Zouk classes on Thursdays, we also offer Upper Intermediate level and above, building to advanced classes, in our Improver and our  'Dance is a Conversation' series.

 

We offer weekly classes 3 nights of​ the week; Tue , Wed & Thur and at 2 different locations: Paddington (on Tue) & East Brisbane (Wed & Thu). 

All of our courses run as 7-week blocks and are progressive. 

 

Unless you have had training in Brazilian Zouk, you should begin with our Beginner Intro classes.

For your own safety, and for the safety as well as fairness to your classmates, you will only be allowed to participate in the next levels when your instructor deems it appropriate.

The Beginner Intro class will get you started with the basic steps, which lay the foundation for enjoying social dancing and progressing safely to more complex concepts.

We will include the history of Brazilian Zouk, basic steps, such as rhythm basic, lateral and the various entries and exits, simple turns, lunge, yoyo, and introduction to rau/elastico (rag doll) and boomerang/bonus.

LOCATION & PARKING:

TUESDAYS: 10 Moreton St, Paddington  ( Plenty of free off street parking) 

Wednesdays & Thursdays: East Brisbane State School ( Plenty of School ground parking )
