Nov 18, 2022 8:00 pm - Nov 20, 2022 6:00 pm$139 – $175
Let’s get ready to celebrate right before THANKSGIVING in our last weekender of the year during this coming pre-thanksgiving celebration!
NYC ZOUK sponsored by ZENZOUK is proud to announce that we will be hosting Yasmin and Saulo from Brazil. They are known for the unique Brazilian Zouk style while incorporating contemporary movement as well as contact improv while respecting the traditions of Brazilian Zouk and Lambada.
This is their first time in the United States with limited availability within the US and they will only be here in NYC on the east coast. Both artists have exceptional talent in combining their skills and talent and we are in for a real treat especially their technique on footwork variations such as the “crossback” and their shelving technique such as using various points of contact for variations in head movement. They have taught all over the world and we can’t wait to have them.
THIS IS A PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION ON THEIR METHOD!
