ZenZouk - 

LVL 1 Fundamentals and LVL 1A Advanced Variations  (Teacher Training Track or Intensive Track)

 

Save the dates for an unforgettable weekend! Zouk N PLay is home to ZenZouk's training ground and a great and relaxed way to dive deep into learning zouk. This year Zouk N Play will offer the ZENZOUK EDUCATION PROGRAM Level 1 Fundamentals and Level 1A Advanced Variations. Each of these levels will have either a Teacher Training track or an Intensive Level track.

 

Thursday July 5th - Sunday July 8th


For an entire 4 Day weekend of classes/workshops/parties and invidiualized small group attention to gain knowledge to start teaching LVL 1 basics, techniques, concepts, and rules of Brazilian Zouk Lambada or LVL 1A Advanced Variations.  

 

Level 1 and 1A Training under ZenZouk - A Brazilian Zouk Lambada school based out of NYC is designed to set the stage for you to begin growing or training a Brazilian Zouk Lambada community in your area.  Level 1 and 1A Advanced Variations under ZenZouk is the foundation because it leads the way for you to later advance in either LVL 2 Brazilian Zouk (traditional) or LVL 2 LambaZouk. 

 

Ryel, founder of ZenZouk, has developed the course curriculum through his international experience as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. His main aim is to educate and cultivate the appreciation for each one of these different styles of Brazilian Zouk-Lambada, thus building a strong foundation of versatility by embracing  evolution  through the classic techniques found in  the origins of the dance (Lambada).  He understands that not all international training is accessible to individuals wanting to grow and develop a Brazilian Zouk Lambada Community, and within this understanding he has dedicated the last year in developing a curriculum that is accessible and suitable for those that want to be teachers and/or community leaders. His Bio can be read here as well as his experience in Zouk and dance.
