Absolute Beginner Zouk – Level 1


In our Absolute Beginner series, you will learn the basic connection, transition, flow and technique of this sensual dance. We will focus on basic movement in place, timing, the basic going forward and back, lateral, and transitions between those elements.

Zouk is a fun modern dance suited for all ages. Zouk music is characterized by a slow rhythm and a heart-beat like deep baseline. It takes its origins in both Brazilian and Caribbean dance cultures, literally engaging people into the “Party Time”. Today, Zouk is often re-mixed with R&B, Pop, and Electronic music.

Stay for a practice session right after the class to nail down your body moves and routines, and socialize with your fellow dancers! Free with the class.
