Zouk Teams
Beginner Zouk Team

This team is designed to help dancers understand how to connect to their partners, be musical in their dances, and learn how to lead and follow in an awesome yet technical way. This will prep dancers for one of the more advanced training teams the following year.​ With a focus on timing, technique, and connection for beginning/intermediate Zouk-ers. We will build a strong foundation of the Brazilian zouk technique that will let you move on to more advanced moves in a safe, body-and-partner-aware way. We work on the quality of movement and body awareness, which you can use in many dance forms.

Intermediate Zouk Team

This team is designed to help students master their foundations to a technical intermediate level that translates to greater variety, technical understanding, and creativity in their dancing. We want to empower students to feel great on the dance floor, improve technique, musicality, and presentation. Students will expand their intermediate vocabulary by building on fundamentals and competency of technically sound movement. Learning how to link foundational movements that harness the natural flow and expansiveness of traditional Rio zouk. Continue to promote the joy and expression of traditional Rio zouk through appreciation of culture and origins of the dance. Build comprehension and skills of natural and safe body movement. Develop comprehension of self as a dancer and co-creation within the dance; highlighting elements of connection to self and to others in partnership. 

Advanced Zouk Team

For the entire year, we'll train in ballet and jazz to build a strong dance base. In addition, we will train timing and technique for progressive Zouk movements. You will gain an advanced understanding of basic technique as well as how to apply different tiers of shaping to make effortless flow in your dance. We will build a dynamic and intelligent sense of connection & music relativity from Xtine and other international/national zouk stars. The goal of this team is to train for 12 months on technique to become a semi-pro zouk dancer.
