Nevada City is known for it's abundance of creative people. In response to this we are offering: dance education, movement specialization, community orientated confidence invigoration, and communication concepts through the lens of Partner Dancing.
I teach the fusion of West Coast Swing and Zouk in a direct and accessible way. The class is filled with technique and explanations of why partner dancing works. The session often starts with a warm-up, using stretching, isolations, and footwork to get into it.
Class is about basic movements that build into more complex patterns repeating fluidly. We then run the amalgamation with every other person in the room to ensure the learning has taken place. ("Notice", we are learning two dances at once so practicing outside of class is important.)
The second 90 minutes is a social dance. A social dance is when people ask each other to dance and then a good time ensues. This is a great opportunity to practice because it follows the class, but also be aware that not everyone wants to practice in a social dance, please respect peoples preferences.
Welcome to our special formula that ensures the movements are stored in your brain/body neurons for future access.
Take the time to search Zouk and West Coast Swing on Youtube. It will prime you for learning and give us some shared levels of excitement.
