Experience this introductory workshop that will focus on basic footwork, turns, and technique of this popular dance genre! Brazilian Zouk is beautiful to watch, and extremely fun to dance! This class will be for dancers of all ages. Couples are encouraged to register together -- but partners are not required!
What is Zouk?
Known for its fluid movements and footwork, strong connection between partners, gorgeous hair whips, body isolations, and incredible music interpretation, Brazilian Zouk has exploded in popularity over the past decade. It was first adapted from its roots of Lambada, and the dance is now combined with a variety of music, including Caribbean Zouk music (which is how the dance came to be known as "Zouk"). For those who have experience dancing other traditional Latin dances, many of the moves, techniques and concepts from those dances can be imported to Zouk, making it relatively easy to adapt to this dance.
At MEPAA, we lead students to improve confidence and strengthen the core skills required to master Middle Eastern dance while establishing a loving connection with the South Florida dance community, all while experiencing the immeasurable joy of dancing to the max!
