For everyone who has wanted to do ballet, but never had the chance, now is your time! So many people have told me stories about wanting to dance but being told by a parent, teacher, or society as a child that their bodies weren't right for ballet. I believe ballet can help every body and every level of dancer (and non dancer!). I studied ballet intensively from the age of 4 to the age of 22 and I would like to share these thousands of hours of knowledge with you. Improve your core strength, balance, posture, gracefulness, body control, and confidence! Suggested attire: Ballet slippers or socks. Stretchy, form fitting clothing. Water bottle, sweat towel. Cost: $16 single class, $100 ten class card

===ABOUT HONOLULU ZOUK===

Kimberly Loo founded Honolulu Zouk in 2015 as a vehicle for creating a dance family around teaching, performing, and choreographing Brazilian Zouk, celebrating its fusion with other dances. Her dance philosophy is based around a desire for each dancer to celebrate awareness of their bodies, and to find joy in connecting with themselves, accepting their sensuality and ability to express themselves through movement. The Honolulu Zouk logo emphasizes how 'ono (delicious) zouk is, and how its dancers love to zouk always and all ways. Kimberly's teaching style is influenced by her technical ballet background and her love of yoking in metaphors. The school is welcoming of nonheteronormative dance roles.

In its first year, Honolulu Zouk was invited to perform for "zouk royalty" at Zouk Night Love in Mexico and received a standing ovation! They have been gracing the Hawaiian Islands and North America with dance instruction and dazzling performances ever since!

 

Honolulu Zouk is comprised of several performance teams, social dance training teams, a heels dance team, a weekly zouk fusion social, ongoing drop in technique classes, and frequent intensive courses with renowned international instructors. Every Sunday #HNLzouk hosts drop in classes at 7p, no experience or partner necessary. Please contact kimberly@hnlzouk.com and come join the family or if you're interested in a performance!
