Our body conditioning classes are targeted for Brazilian Zouk dancers who have completed at least a full cycle of Basics A & B, or have been dancing for at least 6 months. They are structured as "follow along" classes where you are already expected to have also learned these concepts in Zouk classes-- there will be some verbal guiding throughout the hour, but we will not specifically focus on how to execute the movements. These sessions are not meant to be fitness classes, but rather consists of solo exercises to train ourselves to dance Brazilian Zouk in the most efficient way possible. With time, discipline, and repetition, our bodies can start applying the technique practiced in these sessions automatically with minimal effort.
Every session (except some Special Classes with Guest Teachers) includes exercises for categories listed below. Regular attendance is most effective and highly recommended.
Missed classes will not be refunded.
Ribcage, Hip, Sways, Snakes, Body Rolls.
Ankle Strength, Turnouts, Leg Projection.
Each day will have a specific focus that can be any of the following: Spins, Head Movement, Zouk Technique, etc.
You can buy either cut bands or rolls on Amazon.com, choose whichever color you feel works best for your level. We suggest between Green or Blue works well. Below is an example of how we plan to use them, in case you need reference on the band's length.
