Venue: DA Dance Studio
In this course we assume basic knowledge and skill of footwork and hairmovements, so all 24 elements will be arranged in different combinations. Every other week a new combination is taught in which 1 or 2 themes are central; e.g. tension modulation, upper body isolations and transitions. This course can be compared to advanced courses at other schools.
Zouk is a sensual partner dance with roots in Lambada and Samba de Gaffieira. Over the years Zouk has internationally developed as one of the most versatile partner dances, with flow and connection as the most important aspects. Of course the Brazilian influence can still be recognized, the characteristic hip movements and intense experience make Zouk the number 1 partner dance for a lot of people. In the beginners class you will learn the fundamentals of partner dancing by practising figures and patterns. Beside the patterns you will focus on the underlying techniques for partner dancing and for the individual body so you can enjoy this dance for a long time without injuries. Another important aspect of Zouk is the music, in class you’ll learn how to listen to the music and translate the music in movements.
