Service Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION In this beginners course you will learn all of the basic steps that make up the structure of the dance, as well as techniques for partner connection through leading and following. These basic steps are called: - Basic Step - Viradinha - Lateral - Simple Turn - Boomerang - Pião And in addition to the steps and structure you will experience the unique flow of Brazilian Zouk through waves, dives and isolations. The class will have a relaxed and light-hearted atmosphere to hold a comfortable and supportive space to connect better to ourselves and others; and to feel free and confident in learning a new way of movement and dance. BRAZILIAN ZOUK DESCRIPTION Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance that evolved from Lambada in the 1990's. It still contains much of the original Lambada structure, however nowadays it has evolved further to combine bits of contemporary dance, contact improvisation, hip-hop, and other Latin dance influences. The variety of movement is broad, and the possibility for connection is beautiful and deep. Come and experience it for yourself!

ABOUT LEONIE After doing gymnastics almost her whole life, Leonie looked for a new passion and challenge where she could combine learning and expressing herself. In 2018 Leonie stumbled over Brazilian zouk at a social party in Berlin and immediately fell in love with the dance. A world of expressing joy, being fully present in the moment and being creative through dance. Attracted by its complexity, she directly knew that Brazilian zouk is the challenge she was looking for and that that's the dance through which she wants to express herself. After learning more and more as a zouk dancer, Leonie is now super motivated to grow the Brazilian Zouk community in Basel. She wants to give the opportunity to others to feel this freedom and variety of movement, the elegance and the flow, which makes it so special compared to other dances.
