Sensual Connection HK 2019

photoZouk Hong Kong

Sensual Connection HK is a new festival focused on creating magical connections when dancing Brazilian Zouk, Kizomba and Bachata Sensual. 💃🏻🕺

CONCEPT

You know those social dances that you never want to end because you’re so comfortable in that space, at that time, connected with your partner – how can we create that vibe? How do we prepare ourselves to be ready to offer such a dance? How can we connect better with the music and be more creative in our dances? In what ways can we apply what we learn from one of these dance styles to the others? In what ways do we need to adapt and change to get the right feeling? These are the types of questions our artists will be exploring through the workshops.

And, needless to say, there will be lots of opportunities to put that into practice by social dancing at the three event parties held in one of Hong Kong’s largest dance studios: DanzStage.

WORKSHOP THEMES
✔️connection with yourself (body and mind)
✔️connection with the ground
✔️connection with the music
✔️connection with your partner
✔️creativity, energy and flow

Brazilian Zouk Mondays – Samba Special (Lesson & Party)

photoZouk Hong Kong

Regular Zouk Lesson and Party hosted by Simon & Vica and Eric & Natasha. This time, we are delighted to have a dance couple from the Netherlands visiting HK, and they will share with us Samba de Gafieira, another popular Brazilian social dance!

👫Workshop (Samba de Gafieira) Samba Basics & Samba into Zouk 👫

✨Schedule:
8:45pm-10:15pm: CLASS (Samba Basics & Samba into Zouk)
10:15pm onwards: PARTY to have FUN

Cover charge fee HK$130 including one drink, lesson and social dance time

💫 Samba de Gafieira is a partner dance to the Brazilian Samba musical rhythms (should be distinguished from the ballroom samba, danced in International Latin and American Rhythm ballroom dance styles). It appeared in the 1940s and it gets its name from the Gafieira – popular urban nightclubs of Rio de Janeiro at that time. Over time the style significantly evolved away from the style of the 1940s under significant influence from Argentine Tango and incorporated many acrobatic elements. Sambe de Gafieira is sometimes referred as the “Happy Tango” or the “Brazilian Tango”.

In our **1.5 hours** workshop, Tarik & Vicky will introduce you to Samba de Gafieira – its brief history and the different styles. Then it’s time to get our Samba grooves on and learn some of the basic moves of Samba de Gafieira. For those who have dance experience in Zouk you might recognise something… 😉 and in the last 30 minutes we will take on the challenge of integrating these Samba moves into Zouk. Join us! 🕺🏻💃🏻

🤹‍♂🤹‍♀ About the instructors 🤹‍♂🤹‍♀

Tarik Ennad:
Tarik started dancing in 2001 with Claudio Gómez, Claudia de Vries and Vanderlei. He was in the first show team from Dos Bailadores together with Willem. Since 2005, Tarik has been a member of the Brasazouk show team performing both Zouk and Samba in and outside of The Netherlands at different congresses and events. He also assists in the Samba (Pagode) lessons in Brasazouk. While he dances almost all Brazilian partner dances: (Lamba) Zouk, Samba Pagode, Samba de Gafieira, Forro and Bolero, Tarik’s biggest passion is Samba.

Vicky Chan:
Vicky started dancing in 2001- first Ballroom and then Salsa. Almost 10 years later she found Brazilian Zouk and fell in love with it. She admired the unique teaching methods of DA Dance Studio (DançAlegria) – structured curriculum, sound teaching methods and focus on techniques making it possible for anyone to learn to dance. Vicky followed the full curriculum of DA in Brazilian Zouk including the teachers’ course. Around 5 years ago, another Brazilian dance – Samba de Gafieira entered Vicky’s life and since then she found herself in love with both Brazilian dances. Since then Vicky has been focusing herself in Samba de Gafieira and takes all possible opportunities to learn from top teachers including Anderson & Brenda, Carlos & Mirella and Juliana Braga.

Tarik & Vicky teamed up in January 2017 and since then they have been sharing their passion for Samba de Gafieira with more people – via teaching and organising Samba related events in Rotterdam in cooperation with Willem Engel (DA Dance Studio) and beyond, including monthly Samba bootcamps and matinees and yearly participation in the International Samba Day.

Zouk Lesson and Party hosted by Simon & Vica and Eric & Natasha

🔎About the Lesson🔍

Come to reinforce your fundamentals or bring your friends who are first-time zouk dancers. It’s easy to express yourself and enjoy dancing zouk with minimal technique, but important to get lessons to ensure you understand how to dance safely and considerately for your partner.

🔑Additional Tuition🔑

Once you get the hang of things, you may want to take more lessons to hone your technique. We can provide private or small group tuition – talk to us if you’re interested. The key to getting really good is to take regular lessons and practice (like most things in life, the more effort you put in the more you’ll get out)!

We also try to bring top international artistes to Hong Kong periodically to keep us all inspired with new ideas, trendy moves and of course detailed technical training.
