Event description
Learn the art of Brazilian Zouk, a partner dance, in a safe, accepting environment with an optional performance opportunity!

About this event

Brazilian Zouk is a partnered social dance originally from Brazil that has taken the social dance world by storm!  Unique in its prioritization of connection and virtuosic body movement, it is both a fun social dance for trained dancers as well as an excellent cross training opportunity for artists seeking greater comfort both in their own bodies and working with partners. Come explore this beautiful dance, perform if that's your jam, and meet the warm Chicago dance family at the Newport Zouk monthly social!

Session 1A (4 weeks; Feb 2-23) will consist of a jazz warm up, solo body movement exercises, foundation footwork, partner mechanics, connection techniques, and improvisation tools to access your unique creative voice and styling. At the end of each 90 minute class we will learn a short combo to dig into that day's material and top it off with an improvised social dance to process and apply what you've learned.

Organizer The Newport Theater

Organizer of Newport Theater Camp: Zouk Session 1A(Wednesdays 7-8:30; Feb 2-23)

The Newport Theater is a 125-seat independent theater located in the heart of the Wrigleyville neighborhood in Chicago, IL. The Newport Theater hosts artist-produced burlesque, drag, comedy, and variety events.

In the age of Covid, The Newport has shifted to trying to provide resources for artists to help create digital content, including Newport Studio, a multi-camera video editing/production service with same-day edited footage provided to artists through the use of Sling Studio. Additionally, in December of 2020, The Newport Theater unveiled the Newport Virtual Venue (created by QueerCoded).
