Zouk has captured the hearts of many people around the world and has recently started being called "the dance of love". With its strong, flowing movements, Zouk attracts people who are generally strong and grounded, and looking for a dance that emphasizes interdependent partner interaction to create.

Zouk-Lambada as it is often referred to, is a sensual partner dance with origins in Lambada (aka "the Forbidden Dance"). In Antillean French Creole, Zouk means party! The music that we dance to has evolved with the introduction of various genres of music such as hip hop, R&B and pop that have similar rhythmic structures and danceable components.

Zouk is known best for flowing motion and upper body movement (i.e. body waves), giving rise to the woman’s dramatic “hair flicks”. The dance is close with an intimate partner connection. Dancers often deviate from the general rhythm to allow for musical interpretation. The pace of the dance is generally slow and smooth.

The result is that it is beautiful to watch, and extremely fun to dance.

In this course we will teach you a contemporary Rio-Zouk style that is popular and easy to freestyle. This series includes increased attention to lead and follower form and movement to improve connection and liberate style. Half the course will include consolidation via choreography.

This course would suit first time dancers, beginners, improvers and intermediate experience. Dancers of other genres will enjoy the styling and options Zouk can offer.

Course will run from March 10th, 2014 until June 30th, 2014.

Course costs $15 casual for afternoon or $60 consession cards availble for six sessions that must be used within the course duration.
