About Zoukphoria

Zoukphoria is a community led by Ebonie Lee, Eddie Wang, Samuel Sandoval and Bryn Nugent, centered around bringing Brazilian Zouk dancing to Brooklyn. WHAT IS BRAZILIAN ZOUK? brazilian zouk /brəˈzilyən ˈzük\/ noun 1. a fusion of Brazilian Lambada-inspired dance, Caribbean music + international innovation 2. a social dance style characterized by bodywaves, dynamic spirals + infectious beats Brazilian Zouk is a couples dance descended from the Lambada in Brazil. The name Brazilian Zouk is used to distinguish the dance from the Caribbean Zouk dance, which is historically related to, but very different from the Lambada. (Wikipedia) BENEFITS OF ZOUKING - a euphoric feeling - an international crew of friends sharing the love of zouk - body awareness - connection with fellow humans - fluency in the newest social dance style - ‘schmexiness’ - results may vary CREATING SAFE DANCE SPACES Zoukphoria is committed to creating safe dance places.

Level 2A: Explorations of Frame & Turns in Zouk 6-Week Course

With Eddie, Ebonie, and Bryn

NEW - We've restructured our curriculum to better support progressing the content we teach! Our advanced levels are now organized into 6-week modules, where we explore the fundamental concepts of zouk in greater depth. The term 'frame' refers to the physical mechanics of communication between the partners in a dance. In this module, we explore these mechanics in depth - so you can improve your comfort & clarity in your dances. In developing our understanding of frame, we also unlock advanced moves such as: - S turns - Traveling basics - Planada counterbalances - and more! Enrollment is open to those who have taken our Intro to Brazilian Zouk course or can comfortably lead or follow the following moves (basic, viradinha, simple turn, lateral, bonus). --- COVID vaccinations recommended, masks optional ---
