FAQEverything you want to know about Zouk in Munich
Do I need a dance partner to attend classes or workshops?
No. Zouk is a social dance and nobody here has a fixed dance partner. We are rotating partners during all events regularly, so everyone can dance and people get to know different styles of leading and following.
Are there enough Leaders?
Yes! Interestingly in the Munich Zouk Community we have a good ratio of men and women / leaders and followers. Also we are changing partners often, so nobody has to wait for a dance partner too long.
I have never danced before. Whats the best way to start?
Starting with the beginners class or coming to our practise party are the best options for sure. You can start anytime.
Workshops with artists from abroad usually offer beginner-friendly content. You will find all the details in the event description (mostly on Facebook)
What about me having problems with my spine / back? Is Zouk the right thing for me?
Zouk requires the whole body, also the back. All of our teachers place great emphasis on the correct and safe execution of the movements. This prevents injuries from dancing. Most Zouk dancers even experience a significant improvement of their back problems through Zouk!
What to wear?
For lessons, workshops and even the dance parties, most of us like to wear comfortable sportswear. You move a lot in Zouk and you also start sweating quickly.
Women should definitely avoid tight skirts, because they restrict the freedom of movement in the legs too much.
High heels are also absolutely unsuitable for Zouk beginners. Zouk uses a lot of foot movements. Flat shoes with soft and flexible soles are most recommended. Even longtime Zouk lovers often wear comfortable, flat shoes.
