PARTNER NOT NECESSARY:
- Partners in the Zouk classes are not fixed so you'll have opportunity to meet new friends and dance with different people. If you attend with your own partner and for whatever reason you wish to stay with your partner, this is fine, just stay with your partner when we change partners. That said, there are always quite a few participants repeating their beginner course to refresh their basics. Changing partner will provide you the opportunity to dance with stronger dancers to help you learn faster.
ABOUT THE CLASSES:
- If any of our Basic courses are too early for you, you can take 1-2 private lesson/s and jump to the Beyond Basic level which happens an hour later on the same evening :)
- In the Beyond Basics classes We teach new steps, moves & combinations throughout the year. We customize the class based on those who join: improvers, intermediates and advanced, with new moves every time, including
AWESOME TECHNIQUE & STYLING both for LADIES & GENTS!
We start with a simpler move suitable for all and give extra styling and variations for the advanced dancers.
We strongly recommend to repeat the Basic course at least 4 times to become a good dancer (while you join the next level as well). No basic course is exactly the same :)
You get 50% off for repeated Basic course.
ABOUT SAMBA (Solo Dance):
Brazilian SAMBA no PÉ (solo dance), from Rio de Janeiro, for men & women,
In addition to being a very fun full body workout, you can use ALL body moves, isolation & footwork in other dances! Fun Teaching & Fast Results! Bring your friends & make new friends! All ages are welcome :)
ABOUT ZOUK (Couple Dance):
Brazilian Zouk Love is a modern Lambada style, much slower than the original Lambada... a sensual, graceful, romantic dance is taking Oslo & the dance world by storm. Once you taste this amazing couple dance, you get addicted! Brazilian Zouk is danced to zouk & kizomba music or other music containing the zouk beat or where Dj's add the zouk beat to them, such as RnB, Reggaeton, Ragga, Hip-hop, Black music, Pop, Arabic, mixes and any other type of music where the dancers are able to express themselves, being guided by the melody or by a compass that allows the dancers to use their techniques and resources.
