Basics of Brazilian Zouk with Michelle Chan. Beginner Level
We will be working on the basics of Brazilian Zouk, starting with the frame, connection, sending and receiving, steps and basic sequences. The goal is for students to start feeling the unique exhilaration of dancing Zouk, and to experience the joy of connecting with each other and ourselves through dance. No partner or experience needed
