Zouk University

What We Offer

dZouk offers both drop-in classes and and Zouk University progressive programs.

Drop-In Classes

Drop-in classes cover a new topic each week. Our multi-level classes mean that you will always be grouped together with people who have a similar skill level. They are a great option for students who are looking to:

  • Give Zouk a try for the first time
  • Are coming back after a long break
  • Have unpredictable schedules
  • Want to learn Zouk, but are looking for flexibility
  • Enjoy learning new material each week

These 1-hour classes happen every Sunday 6:30-7:30  before the Zouk no T.O. social. For only $10, you can learn Zouk and join the Zouk no T.O. social after the class!

Zouk University programs

Zouk University classes are taken as a structured program, with every week building on previously developed skills. It is perfect for people who are:

  • Want to become strong, technical social dancers
  • Prefer a weekly class that builds on previously-learned techniques
  • Enjoy in-depth learning experiences

Why Zouk University?

We created “Zouk University” because we wanted to focus on educating a higher level of social dancer. Our program focuses on giving you the tools and support to become a great dancer, rather than an endless cycle of private and group classes. It features small class sizes, personalized attention, and regular updates on your progress.

Plus, re-takes are free! You’re always welcome to come back and review the basics – which will help you become a better social dancer.
