About Brazilian zouk:
The moves of this partner dance evolved from the colourful, hip-shaking and playful Lambada, danced barefoot on the beaches of Rio, fusing with the music from african zouk-love beats. The result is a seamless, elastic and sensual dance that can look anything from funky popping to sensual body rolls to soulful music. Either way, it impresses everyone, at any dance floor.
As much as it is fun and versatile, zouk is big on connection. It is about asking, receiving and allowing - communicating between two people (makes zouk the perfect option for a first dance ;P). Therefore, it focuses on technique - core, back and leg strength, flexibility and correctness of movement. Zouk has evolved over time, so it can be danced to a variety of music genres, from lyrical instrumental to hip hop. There are always new things to be learned in zouk - you'll want to keep coming back!
You will get:
Personalised lessons designed around your specific needs.
Beginners - I invite you to break away from shyness, clumsiness and awkwardness on the dance floor. Learn the very basics of the music and rhythm, posture and breathing, and fundamentals of lead and follow. I will take you through the basic steps, then progress to turns and body movements. You will lead and follow a whole dance by 4 weeks of classes.
Beyond beginners - Focusing on variations and technique, your leads will be impressionable and memorable to followers, and followers will confidently perform tricky spins whilst looking fabulous on the dance floor.

The purpose of the free class is to get to know you, your inspiration to learn zouk, your commitment level and schedule, so I can make the classes to suit you. You can choose to have this session right before your practical first class, or at a separate time.
