Cloud9Zouk Assistant/Volunteer UQ Student offers Latin Partner/Introductory Funk dance styles teaching for anyone interested amongst Inner/Southern Brisbane

Methodology

I approach all my teachings via a solid familiarity on basic steps, frame, connections and general foundations and can break down complex moves and steps as simply an interpreted variation of a basic step.

Musicality (best interpreted as dancing for the purpose of the song and not for the sake of dance) is also an integral part of the dance and will be the other major focus (and can definitely be learnt) which will especially help students understand why certain moves or the dance style itself exists.

This way my students and peers have always points of references and can easily identify how to improve and become more confident in their dance lives, whether it is for performance or general social settings.

Background

I'm an UQ engineering/commerce student who's had a dance background for over 8 years and a music background for as long as I can remember. I've been a part of our university's "UQ Dance" club for 3 full years as well as "UQ Street Groove" for 3 years which both seeks to further better the dance skills and personal growth of its members. Lately I have been a contributor for Brazilian dance school "Cloud9Zouk" who teaches the Brazilian latin partner dance style "Zouk" (Not listed on this website) but I also have much experience in the other popular styles Salsa and Bachata. I have given many peers and contacts "off-the-side" lessons and seen many of my friends' performances skyrocket and I hope I can do the same for you.

I am also capable of teaching introductory old-school funk styles, namely Popping and Locking, as I have had over 5 years of self-taught experience and 3 years of learning them properly. However I no longer specialise in this field.

Nelson is a native English speaker. I’ve been friends with him for two years, and I found him to be an honest and friendly person. As an ESL, I have received a lot help with my English from him - both writing and speaking. He is always so nice and patient when he explains things to make sure your problem is solved in the end.
