Followers Solo Training: The Zouk Body
Join us in this new course where we will explore how you can use different styles of movement by some of the most loved Followers in the Brazilian Zouk community
Aaaannd… We're back!
District Zouk’s Followers Solo Technique course is coming to you in our 7th cycle of online dance classes!
This month, Alisson and Vanessa will come together to share with you their best practices to transform and train your body to be its best. In this followers course, they will bring to you their combined expertise on how to train, what to train and the best ways to unlock your potential in learning and training your dancing.
‘The Zouk Body’ is one of the most beautiful aspects of Brazilian Zouk. There are many different accents that you can learn, in this course we will teach you how to experiment and find the one that suits your body best. We know this is a daunting journey, but together we will break them down and find what works for you!
Once you can understand that most of what you may see as a ‘new move’ is only an ‘upgraded’ version of a foundation move, your dance aesthetics will start to change. For everyone who’s been working on their technique and foundation, this is your next step. We will guide you through this research/experiment by teaching you how some of the most adored dancers have chosen to execute their foundations and why it suits them better.
The short term goal for this is to show you how foundations can be expressed in many different ways, and often they can also be adapted and disguised and in that situation you may think: ‘I don’t know this move’... We are here to help you recognize and over time get more confident with your following and with the flow of your dance.
This is a solo course for followers, or current leaders who want to learn the followers role. If you have someone to apply some of the concepts with it can be helpful to get immediate feedback and understanding of how things flow together, but it is not necessary.
To take better advantage of this course, students should have some dancing experience (Brazilian Zouk or others), but it is not compulsory. Since we are not going to be working on partnered patterns, anyone with some partner dancing experience and the will to learn can join us!
We will be using moves and concepts from Brazilian Zouk and technique/influence from some of the most prominent followers in our industry. Those can often be expressed in many ways, which is what we will be doing. What we want is to show you the ‘key secrets’ when it comes to ‘The Zouk Body’, like that moment when you go: ‘oh, that was niiiice’.
