Prepare Your Body to Move in any Direction!

Dancing zouk as a follower we have a very important mission: to prepare our body to receive the leading and to be ready to move with the leading in any direction.  

A good follower technique allows you to be relaxed in here and now:

  • enjoying the connection with your partner
  • giving you the stability and the right muscular tone that you need in every situation
  • feeling your body and the music without being worried about the next steps that your partner will lead

To reach these goals, we divided the follower technique into four sections: 

  • The footwork: How we are stepping, walking, and turning
  • The body structure: How we connect the different body parts playing with the muscular tone.
  • The frame: How we connect the leading from the arms and shoulders with our body structure.
  • The contact: How we manage the physical contact with the partner.

At the end of the course, we will go through the head movements and we will learn to connect the frame with both, the footwork and the headwork.

Learning to focus on the follower technique you will enjoy more the dance and you will get the zouk flow easily. This course, with more than two and a half hours of recorded materials, will help you to do it!
