Saturday Zouk Workshop W/ Firefly + Atoro says
$15 for 2 hours: 1.5 hour class + 30-minute practica!

Atoro and Firefly 蛍 of Zouk Atlanta will teach Brazilian Zouk dance for beginners.

*No street shoes or heels. Bring soft-soled shoes or jazz shoes. The floor is so cushy and fun you might kick your shoes off!*

This weekly class will focus on the core of Zouk movement. Beginner-friendly but suitable for all levels. Dancers new to Zouk frequently focus on learning ‘moves’ at the expense of the fundamentals that form the basis for everything else. The essence of Zouk – the connectedness to yourself, your partner, to the floor – is the water we swim in, the air we breathe. We’ll be focusing on how to achieve Zouk movement that is grounded, balanced, and purely improvisational.

Watch the videos on the Zouk Atlanta page and YouTube channel to learn more about Brazilian Zouk!

Brazilian Zouk emerged when Brazilian Lambada dancers began to move to the Zouk music of the French Caribbean. This movement continued to branch off and evolve into what we practice, which is best known throughout the world as Rio Style or ZoukLove. Its slow and sensual choreography is full of torsions, hair throws, leg leads and it allows interpretation of several different music styles such as R&B, Chillout, Dubstep and more.
