CLASS INFORMATION

 

We offer two nights of classes, Tuesday Technique nights for intermediate & advanced level zoukers (with a brand new Beginner class now added to the night!) and Fun Thursday nights for Beginner through Foundation level. 

Our next Beginner Intro and Foundations & Intermediate class options will be run as 7-week blocks . Unless you have had training in Brazilian Zouk, you should begin with our Beginner Intro classes. For your own safety and the safety of your classmates, you will only be allowed to participate in higher 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.

You are not a beginner anymore!

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

Our Foundations to Intermediate Zouk class will build on from the previous course to refine the movements you have already gained familiarity with, and to introduce new dance concepts, footwork and movements such as boomerang/bonus, viradinha, cambre, rau, and body isolations.

LOCATION & PARKING ON THURSDAY NIGHTS:
 

Don't worry! we have plenty of parking inside the East Brisbane State school ground at the school. Be sure to enter the parking from Wellington Rd access and turn left to take you to main parking.

Also, on Tue night, we have plenty off street parking at Moreton St, Paddington.

WHAT IS MY LEVEL?

 

Level 1 - Intro Beginners level

Tuesdays 6:30pm & Thursdays

6:00pm

These Intro classes are suitable for those who are either new to partner dancing or with no or little Zouk experience, as well as those of you who are coming back to Zouk after a long break.
Our Intro Beginner class is an accelerated introduction to Brazilian Zouk where we aim to give you a 'toolkit' of key Zouk movements that you can use to get your started and having fun on the social floor. As this course is your grounding for Zouk, we encourage you to get your most out of it, and then like a good movie or book you've enjoyed, repeat it a 2nd time to get the most out of it and to notice things you may have missed in your 1st time.🙂

Level 2 - Foundation level

Thursdays

7:30 pm

This class is suitable for those who have just moved up from our Beginner classes or who have 3 month's  - up to 1 year of Zouk class experience. We will be working on variations of key Zouk movements learned in our Intro Beginner classes as well as Lead/Follow and musicality to expand your repertoire of Zouk and help to make you a more comfortable and confident social dancer.

Level 3 - Improver Level

This class is suitable for those who have progressed up from our Foundation class or those with at least 1 year's Zouk classes experience. This class designed to work as bridging level between our Thursdays & Tuesdays.

8:00 pm

This Class is by Invitation Only and suitable for those who have moved up from our Improver class or with over 1-2 year's of Zouk classes experience and have a good understanding of complex Footwork. The focus for Series 1 will be improving your Lead/Follow skills and Connection in your dance, as well as on upper body and head movements, such as Boneca, Rottisseries and tilted turns, etc, and more complex variations of movements such as Counter Balance, etc.

Level 5 - " Dance is a Conversation" Series 2

Tuesdays

TBC

This is an advanced level class by Invitation Only, for students progressing from Series 1 of our 'Dance is a Conversation' or for Zouk dancers with more than 2 years, and ideally longer, classroom and social dancing experience.
Students considering Series 2 should already be comfortable with executing (as a leader or as a follower) movements such as Boneca, Rotisserie, Tilted Turns, Counter Balance.
