Foundations Choreography Course

Tie all your moves together in one smooth routine                                 NEXT STEP: Mazouka Certification Program

So you've finished the Zouk Foundations Program and have some solid moves under your belt. It's time to put it all together.

What will I learn?
In this 12-week choreography course you'll solidify your foundation in zouk social dancing while developing the skills to look great on the dance floor. You will learn and master a short choreographed routine designed to cover all of the most commonly used figures and styling options that are highly practical for social dancing.

The choreography is designed as an example of how you could social dance a song using all of the key elements covered in our Zouk Foundations program. Leads will develop their ability to transition smoothly between moves that flow well into one another, and to interpret the music through choice and phrasing of movements. Follows will learn to follow "actively", incorporating styling, musicality and flow into their dancing. By the end of the course you will become skilled at executing a core vocabulary of zouk movements, allowing you to use them effortlessly on the dance floor. 

Are there any pre-requisites?
You'll need to be comfortable with all the material in our Zouk Foundations Program or receive consent from the instructors. If you're not sure where you're at, you can take an assessment. If you'd like to prepare yourself for the course, you can take some private classes with us to catch up.
