Brazilian Zouk workshops with Caroline & Mustafa on 16th of May, during the Pinse weekend!

A lot of good things will happen during the Pinse Weekend! There will be the Brazilian Carnival, with Zouk, during the weekend (more info coming soon!) and a day of workshops on the Monday!

*************************************************
SCHEDULE MONDAY 16th MAY
10:00-12:00 Beginners/basic technique (also good for advanced dancers, you can never practice your basics enough!)
12:00-13:00 Lunch (bring your own!)
13:00-16:00 Intermediate technique (requires either that you take the beginners/basic technique workshops, or that you have taken a similar workshop with us before)

*************************************************
ABOUT
If you have not danced Brazilian Zouk before, or would like to freshen up your basics, the first workshop (10:00-12:00) is for you. Here you will learn some basic aspects of the dance that we will use in the second part. No previous experience required, and advanced dancers are also welcome!

In the second workshop (13:00-16:00) we will work on technique beyond the basics. You will learn different ways to use the basics and play with them, so you have more tools to use in your social dancing!

This is NOT one of those workshops where you are shown a combination and are expected to remember a lot of things. We will work a lot with bringing out your strengths and giving you personal feedback to help you quickly learn in a fun and relaxed environment.

*************************************************
PRICES
Beginners/basic technique: 200 DKK (after 1st May: 250 DKK)
Intermediate technique: 400 DKK (after 1st May: 450 DKK)

ABOUT BRAZILIAN ZOUK

Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance that is growing all over the world at the moment. It has only been in Europe now for about 20 years, and it is constantly growing and evolving. Traditionally, it was danced to Zouk music from the Caribbean, but now it can be danced to a variety of music, including R&B, pop, hip hop, and Kizomba, which makes it very versatile. Brazilian Zouk is known for its flowing, expressive and sensual movements. It is a dance with focus on trust and connection between the dancers, which can be tactile (connecting through touch), visual (connecting by looking at one another) or both at the same time. Both closed and open embrace are used in the dance, and sometimes the dancers also dance without physical connection.

*************************************************
THE TEACHERS

Caroline (DK) has many years of experience in dance, but her favorite dance is Brazilian Zouk. She dances and teaches Brazilian Zouk, High Heels, Modern, Modern jazz, Jazz, Contemporary, Improvisation and Ballet. She has been teaching and organizing Zouk in Copenhagen for two years, despite living in Holland. She lives in Amsterdam, where she is doing a Bachelor in teaching dance at the School of the Arts (AHK). She has taught Zouk at international congresses, for example Berlin Zouk Congress, Amsterdam Zouk Congress and St. Valentine’s Dance Weekend and has worked with artists like Ailton Silva, Eric Louw, and Adilio Porto. Her current dance partner is Mustafa Kocer, and they teach Brazilian Zouk together in the Netherlands, in Denmark and at international events.

Mustafa (TUR) met Caroline almost two years ago and fell in love with Zouk. He has a background in Ballroom dance as well as Salsa and Bachata, but now focuses mainly on Brazilian Zouk. He continues to improve himself by also taking classes in modern, contemporary, jazz and hip hop, and uses inspirations from these styles in his Zouk.

*************************************************
PRIVATES

Caroline and Mustafa are also available for privates during the weekend. Contact zoukincopenhagen@gmail.com for more information on times and prices.
