The times when you are at the party thinking “What can I lead next?” and feeling that your mind is blocked are over. You will see new possibilities and create in real-time at the parties.
Dancing Zouk will never again consist of remembering and repeating small choreographies that you’ve learned in previous classes. You will surprise the followers with new moves they didn’t know they could do!
Get a very good foundation dancing on a regular beat.
Become clear at leading because you will understand the body movement of the followers better.

Traditional Zouk Atoms
15 hours of classes to explore the world of the atoms! We will go through the traditional footwork patterns of zouk, combining them and adding the technique for the head movements. Leading and Follower Technique courses are included!
New Atoms Set 1
The new atoms are here! Explore 9 new footwork patterns and exciting head movements. We will combine them all and integrate them in our dance -close embrace and open position- and create fluent transitions. Sooo much fun!
When you understand how the different footwork patterns for the follower work and how they are naturally connected, the dance changes: You stop using the memory to lead and start playing with the different possibilities in real-time. You create more and the dance is always interesting for the follower because she/he doesn't know what's coming next. There will be more flow and fun for everybody!
How will you reach that point? Learning step-by-step the different footwork patterns and combining them in very different ways:
- The Traditional Zouk Atoms: We start with the traditional footwork of Brazilian Zouk (5 courses) and then we add the technique for the head movements (3 courses). We recommend starting here to get you thinking about the way of the atoms. Ultimately, learning to combine the footwork and head movement is the key!
- The New Atoms Set 1: Yes! You're reading right! There are a lot of new footwork patterns out there waiting for you to create in your dance! We will learn 9 new atoms and how they open the door to new and amazing head movements (6 courses). Exciting stuff!
To get maximum benefit out of the Zouk Atoms lessons, we recommend training with a partner. If you can’t find a partner, that’s still okay!
