Class Description

Accelerated Beginner Bootcamp: 
In this 3-hour Bootcamp we will go over all the basic Zouk moves of our 10-week Beginner Zouk curriculum.
After this Bootcamp you are ready for the dance floor and for the BZA Improvers Zouk course!
Improvers course: 
This course is designed for people that already have some experience with Brazilian Zouk dancing. In this course we will start working on leading/following of head/upper body movements which make the Zouk dance such a unique partner dance!
Intermediate 1+2 course:
In this 20-week course (two 10-week courses in series) we will go into more complex zouk patterns. We will start with more challenging head/upper body movements and we start adding some musicality  (breaking the standard boom-chick-chick rhythm).
Pre-advanced 1+2+3 course:
This 30-week course (three 10-week courses in series) is for already more experienced dancers that know how to lead/follow most standard head/upper body movements. In this course we will start challenging the students with more contemporary patterns (like the international zouk artists :)), starting to lead/follow using other parts of the body then only the hands (contact improvisation techniques).
Advanced course
This is a class for zoukers that have mastered all the pre-advanced Zouk patterns. In this class we want to give more personal attention. Every class will work on perfecting already familiar moves and adding variations and styling. Furthermore, we will work on better connection and musicality. We will also be teaching new more experimental moves selected either by us or by the students.
