Dance classes in Jena - Brazilian Zouk
Since more than 9 years regular Zouk dance classes take place in Jena. In these you have the opportunity to learn many techniques for cross-dance movements in addition to a new Latin American dance.
The diverse movements and a range of musical genres (including R’n’B, Pop, Hip Hop) to which you can dance, make the dance a couple dance that offers creativity and improvisation.
Zouk, or Brazilian Zouk, is a couple dance that has its roots in the early 1990s in Brazil. It is a dance with clearly defined basic steps and rhythmic patterns. The most characteristic feature of this dance style is upper body movements, which due to their complexity require good development of leading and following techniques. Other features are body isolations, inclined turns as well as counter-balance techniques.
In our classes we try to cover all styles and thus lay the foundation for all Zouk dance events. If you like couple dances, you should definitely try Brazilian Zouk.
