Edition 3 - Head Movements
How do we challenge ourselves to dance better than ourselves? It takes consistent learning and practice surely, but even more it takes conscious awareness and little explosions of epiphanies that help you discover how you can ascend in your dance journey.
If you are looking to challenge yourself in your current dance journey, come train with us in our quarterly intensives.
This series, we focus dive deep into one of the most unique aspects of Brazilian Zouk: Head Movements!
We will begin by understanding the body from toe to head. Throughout the course, we will focus on preparing your body for head movements, stationary head motion, travelling head movements, fluidity in the body, injury prevention, frame, strengthening/ keeping alignment, balance, finding axis.
