Learning Zouk Online

Did you know that you can also learn brazilian zouk online? As a rule, online learning is not something you should 100% rely on, especially when you’re just starting out, since it’s nearly impossible to learn leading and following technique alone without a teacher. However learning steps and solo technique is doable!

Online courses might be a good starting point if you’re still working up the courage to go to a class or you don’t have any teachers in your area. For intermediate and advanced levels, the video courses can provide detailed explanations about technique that you can watch again and again. (When was the last time you reviewed your basics?) Online courses are brilliant for working on your solo technique, since in order to become good in partner dance, you also need to be able to do the moves by yourself.

For this post I have gathered links to different platforms where you can learn through video and I will do my best to keep the article updated. In order to not overwhelm you with choices, I picked courses with teachers I have personally taken classes from and/or I trust that they’re professionals. I have included links to the platforms, as well as prices, names of teachers and topics they’re covering.

For more online courses, online festivals, live classes or shorter courses you can check out this new Facebook group where they’re trying to round up as many sources as possible. Also take a look on Eventbrite for zouk online festivals and events, like Kadu & Larissa’s classes or District Zouk. Multiple artists are offering online private classes, so definitely keep an eye on your favourite artists’ social media channels for more information.

Also don’t forget that to improve as a dancer you want to be both fit and flexible. Take advantage of any general fitness or stretching classes online. I have used Lazy Dancer Tips Youtube channel for at-home workouts for many years now.

The global lockdown that we experienced had a wonderful effect of inspiring teachers to move online. When it comes to dance classes, we are usually limited to whatever is offered in our city, but with the new online classes popping up we can now learn from the top artists all over the world without having to pay for travel and I am here for it!!

See you in my next blog post 🙂
