 *But How do I learn a Social Dance By Myself? 

One of the most important ways to train for social dancing is building solo technique. It’s my belief that a dancer should train as many movement pathways in their body as possible in order to prepare for partner dancing. The Efficient Follow is a series of workshops that uses solo exercises to build strength, proficiency and efficiency of solo movement. The nature of this series makes it perfect for the online platform. The goal of this course isn't to train zouk patterns, but rather to prepare the body for safe movements and prepare the mind to identify and accurately execute the movement within zouk patterns.*Is This 

Helpful for Leads?

Yes Absolutely! A lead is an invitation to a movement. How can you lead someone to do something if you don’t understand the mechanics of what you’re leading? As leads, the more awareness we have about what we’re trying to lead, the more specific, comfortable and creative we can be.

....Not to mention the perks of strength building and empathy creating. 

*Prerequisites

This course is for anyone who wants to explore the art of head movement. You do not need to dance Brazilian zouk to join. It’s highly recommended that you take an in-person class before you apply these techniques with a partner.
