From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Ever notice how salsa music always sounds sort of . . . the same? Yeah, us too. The good news is that there's finally a class in town that lets you learn to partner dance to all of your favourite tunes, including hip hop, pop, and lyrical. Welcome to Brazilian zouk.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We think dance should be less about choreography and patterns and more about connection and improvisation. That's why we started Ludic Zouk--to celebrate the fun and freedom of social dance. Our classes focus on essential social dance skills of leading, following, feeling, and connecting--with yourself, your partner, and the music.
What do you love most about your job?
We love facilitating stress-free dance classes full of fun and laughter. Class is like a dance lab--a place to experiment, discover, and feel comfortable in a community of friends.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
"I love Ludic Zouk's unconventional approach to exploring dance. In this class I’ve learned to lead and follow, I’ve been exposed to unlimited movement variations, and I’ve improved my other dancing immensely. Coming to class to be amongst friends in an open and trusting environment is a welcome change to just doing dance drills, choreography or patterns . . .In class we are guided through movement and exploration but encouraged and challenged to create for ourselves. No other class has brought me connection on this level!" - current student
