The "BZ Fit Challenge" is a program for those who want to take a serious (lol) approach. We incorporate aerobics theory and provide a safe and effective exercise program that is also recommended for busy people.

Goal: BZ = Before Zouk! This program is designed to be a gateway to the world of Brazilian Zouk, making it accessible and enjoyable for everyone. We also introduce solo practice methods that are suitable for busy individuals (pronounced BZ).

Day 2: Basic rhythm and steps (1), Boom Bom Tic, and musicality.

The program consists of four one-hour sessions, totaling four hours of instruction. There is a one-week break between each session for participants to practice and improve before the next session. The program runs for one month and includes approximately 10 hours of training, including four hours of self-practice outside of the sessions with video assessment and feedback time.

Participants who complete the program will receive a certificate of completion.
