TUESDAY NIGHT INTRO CLASS

NORTH SIDE

NOW WE TEACH

INTRO BEGINNER CLASSES ON

2 NIGHTS OF THE WEEK

THURSDAY NIGHT INTRO CLASS

SOUTH SIDE

A little more about the Structure of our classes -
​We offer two nights of classes, Tuesday Technique nights for upper intermediate & advanced level zoukers (with a brand new Beginner class now added to the night!) and Fun Thursday nights for Beginner through Foundation/ Intermediate level. 

Thursday nights is our 'Intro to Zouk' Beginner and our Zouk Foundations & Intermediate classes where the focus is on having fun and learning foundational movements and many new combinations. 

 

For our next block of classes, we are offering unbeatable value of $30 for 3 wks class option for absolute beginners, to encourage more people into joining our Zouk scene and to give them a chance to try this beautiful style in a more flexible and an affordable way​.

 

Our Intro Class is then followed by Foundations to Intermediate to concentrate on footwork and movements to get you more comfortable on the social dance floor. All of our classes are progressive and build on from each other over the course of a 7-week block.

Once our dancers progress to the next level, we invite them to transition into our 'Dance is a Conversation' series on Tuesdays, where the ratio of dance skills to 'combos' will shift towards more onto the technique, principles and the 'grammar' of dance.

CLASS INFORMATION

WHAT DO YOU NEED:

No experience necessary! :)
We love the challenge of teaching our newcomers.

No partner required! :)
>Wear comfortable clothes to dance in and bring along your water bottle.

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 'Dance is a Conversation' series.

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 (rag doll) and boomerang/bonus.

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.

WHAT IS MY LEVEL?

Level 1 - Intro Beginners level

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 to 6 month's Zouk experience.
