Course Description

At Zouksters, our weekly classes run pretty much around the year with the odd break here and there. Classes are structured and progressive. We recommend that students don't miss classes. However, if you do miss the odd class we do quickly repeat moves taught in each class at the start of the next class. We believe this reinforces what's taught in each class and students find this helps them remember moves and turn patterns better. The following are some of the classes we run during the year. If you still require more information about any of our classes, please feel free to contact us.
