Read more about Zouk at the ZIS blog

Brazilian Zouk is a couple’s dance with origins in the 90’s Lambada. The dance is now combined with a variety of music, including Caribbean Zouk music (music genre), which is how the dance came to be known as Zouk.

In Brazilian Zouk, it is becoming more popular to learn both dance roles: Leading and following. We encourage our students to learn both if wanted, regardless of gender. In our social dances, we have a non-alcohol policy: no alcoholic beverages are allowed to be consumed during our dances. Read more about our instructors and see our demos.

At Zouk in Stockholm, you learn the freshest varieties of Brazilian Zouk, since the instructors travel all the time out to Europe to get inspiration and education. We also invite international instructors regularly.

Our classes are located in central Stockholm:

Afro Latin Mix

Kopia av BUNDA.png

In this class, you shake it as much as you want!

Our focus is not just cardio, but also:

  • Some moves that you learn and make you feel like a star whether you shake off at home in your kitchen, or at the dance club.
  • A lot of work with booty and legs, lunges and a little twerk.
  • A lot of laughter and crazy fun!

You recharge with good energy for a whole week. Be prepared for some afro, dancehall, Brazilian funk, and Axé. Day fresh music as well as some retro. Music is carefully selected for a 60-minute mini-party.

Do you want to hear a sample of how the music sounds? please click here. 

We build up the hour so that you train the movements a little at a time, and we are gradually increasing the effort by the end of the class. The choreographies are simple but useful and, not least, party-friendly. The more you do these choreographies, the more flow and feeling you will get on the dance itself. No previous dance requirements, just shake off!

Body and Technique Class

10494593_10152618243179015_6759865308310130172_n

This is a special class for you who want to develop your Zouk dance and take it to the next level, for which you need not only softness but also lots of body control to be able to execute advanced movements and prevent injuries.

Up to 70% of this class would be solo technique and on the floor. This is why we cannot have a big training group: it needs to be personalized. We work either laying or sitting down, so you need to wear comfortable clothes (no jeans). A good part of the class is solo technique, standing or on the floor. When in couples, we do not train Zouk patterns, but we train concepts, with exercises from Mzouk Level 1. Included in the class is a few body exercises to improve posture, activate muscles and eventually perform better, for instance: Head movements.

 

It is possible to attend even if your focus is other Zouk style than Mzouk, but you need to have some base in Zouk / Mzouk. You don’t need to attend as a leader or follower, changing roles is part of the method.

For information on when, where and how much this class is please write to zoukinstockholm@gmail.com
