Cloud 9 Zouk is one of the only dance schools in Brisbane which is specialised in Brazilian Zouk. We love this beautiful style so much and our aim is to bring extra happiness to people's lives by creating a friendly community.
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.
