Followers Solo Training: Connecting Foundations
In this Followers course, we will dive into the art and skill of connecting movements to improve your flow and understanding when dancing Brazilian Zouk.
Welcome back zoukies!
We’ve completed 7 cycles of ‘Zouk Followers Solo Training’. 👏🏻 Over those courses we have explored open hold, close hold, turns, body movement and more. We’ve received very positive feedback, and this has been one of our most attended courses so far! Obrigado 🙏🏻
While we understand that learning those concepts and moves separately are important for your journey, we also know that it’s very helpful when you can combine them in different ways. Therefore, in this 8th cycle, Alisson Sandi & Vanessa Scott will guide you through different ways those concepts and moves can come together.
Through this journey, you will become more confident and create better habits to prepare for when we are back into in-person classes and socials.
It’s no secret that Brazilian Zouk is a beautiful yet demanding dance. Focusing on solo techniques helps to build the body awareness and muscle memory so that you can smoothly execute these movements with a partner.
This learning group will provide you with regular times to learn and ask questions from our beloved and renowned instructors, additional opportunities to practice, and a community to share videos with and get feedback.
This is also a way you can support our instructors - who have teaching dance as their full-time occupation - and they can support you during this time.
To attend this course, you should know basic timing, footwork and simple patterns for Brazilian Zouk (2+ months of classes).
The techniques not covered in this course were part of our previous Followers Solo Training Course, which is available in our Thinkific Platform. Please let us know if you want to know more.
