We are excited to bring to you a 3rd edition of our Solo Choreo course with Alisson Sandi, this time also with Vanessa Scott assisting. Our students have already completed 2 choreographers, each quite different from each other, helping to learn different elements and become better dancers.


This journey has been welcomed with a lot of sweat and smiles, while we test our own limits and conquer insecurities about learning something outside of the box, in a fast and efficient pace.


In this new course, we are going to push it to another level bringing in many surprises, as well as some requests from our students.


CHOREOGRAPHY TRAINING? WHY? HOW?

I know, I know.. Why should you learn a Solo Choreography? How can this help you in your partner dancing journey? We are glad you asked! Over the years, especially in the last few months, we have seen an enormous amount of appreciation for solo training grow as dancers around the globe have realised that they NEED to learn how to coordinate, feel, listen, memorise and drill dance on their own. Our choreographies are challenging and outside of the box, but one point we always keep in mind while creating the routine is to make sure we are including key techniques, moves and concepts from Brazilian Zouk and Lambada to help our dancers with continuous practice whilst creating good habits that will become natural in their body, and this is the secret to a confident dancer!

WHAT AM I GOING TO LEARN?

In a few words, A LOT! 


This course will teach you techniques and elements from Brazilian Zouk, Lambada and others dance styles to help you grow. Each month we teach a brand new choreography that is tailored to a new song, theme and group. This allows us to reach new areas and expose our students to elements that they wouldn't have been exposed otherwise.


To be more specific, on top of what we have already mentioned above, you are going to learn a lot of what is not taught in regular classes, such as: floor-craft, presentation, body lines, styling, elements from other styles, timing and rhythm variations, musicality tips and most importantly, freedom to be in control of your own body.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

The power of good habits is often underestimated. By practicing a routine over and over again, you will create habits in your body that will eventually, for your own surprise, come out in your social dancing and make you feel great.


On top of that, experiencing different shapes, turns, timings, footwork, etc… will make you a dancer who is more experienced, knowledgeable, and musical. Plus, learning sequences is a skill, so this will help you to learn more quickly and develop your own style by feeling what is right for your body.


For our next 4 week online cycle you will learn a new choreography course with Alisson Sandi where the goal is to have you learn and practice different Brazilian dance flavors. He will use inspiration from Lambada, Brazilian Zouk and Samba dance and music to make you dance, sweat, have lots of fun, and also learn from a diverse and creative choreography.

DOES IT HAVE PREREQUISITES?

To get the most out of this choreography course, you should have some Brazilian Zouk knowledge (6 months or more of classes). As much as this is a set routine, some basic concepts of the dance are fundamental to your enjoying of the course. Other than the above, if you have already done a lot of other dances and you are used to picking up choreography in a fast and efficient pace, you may also be able to fully enjoy this course

Junior Instructor

Vanessa Scott

Vanessa Scott found zouk in New Zealand and was drawn to its music, fluidity and circular movement. When she lived in the midwest US, she persuaded a ballroom teacher to split the cost of some instructional DVDs and learn Zouk from scratch together. In 2016, Vanessa moved to the DMV area and has been zouking as much as possible ever since. She joined the District Zouk dance team and performed with them for three years, and began teaching with District Zouk at the end of 2016. In 2017, she went to the first ever 30-day Rio Zouk Immersion Course in Brazil where she studied with top Brazilian instructors Jaime Aroxa, Renata Pecanha, Brenda Carvalho and Anderson Mendes da Rocha. Working closely with them in such an intimate setting allowed her to see the depth and different philosophies of this dance. She continued learning from some of the top international instructors, including a 40-hour one-on-one training with Xandy Liberato in Spain and a 19 hour training with William and Paloma in Singapore. In 2018, she formed her own Ladies Performance Team with District Zouk and she continued as the director and sometimes as the choreographer. In summer 2019, the District Zouk Ladies team won first place at the National Team Zouk N Play Competition under Vanessa’s direction. Vanessa has been teaching, traveling the world, and soaking up different flavors of Zouk, and is excited to share her passion and knowledge with others.
