Yoga classes are run by Simi Roche - an amazingly talented yoga teacher and student of Arthur & Layssa's who understands how Yoga can and should connect to Zouk.
While optional it's highly recommended, even for those of you who have never practiced Yoga before!
Our workshops are alternately run by Arthur & Layssa and Leo & Becky. They are collaborating on an integrated, intensive zouk training week to take your zouk to another level.
In addition to the core workshop tracks, DJ Kakah will be running two 1 hour workshops over the retreat covering connection and musicality.
We're taking care to ensure all attendees have mastered zouk fundamentals. It's not an event for beginners, will be challenging but doable for those who are comfortable with fundamentals, and will push even the most experienced zouk dancers.
Trust us when we say your zouk is going to be elevated. Think of how much more personal attention you're going to get from teachers in such a small-class setting over 5 days!
Every day there'll be an opportunity to social dance and practice, whether it's a guided practica at the end of class, social at the end of the day or evening party. The 2 dance spaces are also available throughout the day outside of classes for your use if you fancy an additional practice session.
Zouk pool parties and free time.
Every afternoon there'll be an opportunity to dance and practice the moves you learnt in the days workshops.
If you'd prefer to take a break you can treat the afternoons as free leisure time: relax in your air-conditioned villa, or venture out with new and old friends to nearby shops, book in a spa treatment, or explore the exciting, tropical surrounds of Ubud with itss wealth of restaurants, bars and other sightseeing opportunities.
To make things easier you'll receive a guide with our top recommendations around Ubud. 😀
With 5 nights of partying we've got a stellar evening line-up through the event which your ticket covers. Here's a brief outline:
Thursday Night Party!
We're all finally together! To celebrate, connect and decompress we're hosting welcome drinks at Svarga Loka resort and then whisking you away to a surprise dinner venue.
This is a chance to connect with friends old and new, relax into the tropical settings and hang out with our instructors.
Think poolside afternoon tunes, drinks and snacks and then a group dinner into the late evening.
Friday Night Party!
We're all still very fresh and that calls for our first social dancing evening at a spectacular nearby venue.
Dance the night away from 8pm till late with everyone, including our 4 international guest teachers. When almost 10% of the social scene are world-class international zoukers you know it's going to be an amazing first social. 😍
What also makes for an amazing zouk party? Why of course, an amazing DJ set from DJ Kakah
Saturday Night Party!
It's Saturday night - time to party!
Over the weekend we'll be planning some amazing day and evening parties.
Just keep some energy in store for long, unforgettable, blissed-out sessions!
Sunday Night Party!
Sundays are about chilling, tunes, and dancing in exotic locations...
Taking up prime spots at every venue, we kick back in a tropical paradise, engrossed in conversation over candleight with our teachers, kicking back with cocktails and when the moment takes us getting up to dance zouk in a very public setting.
There's something magic about dancing in public: one hundred pairs of non-dancing eyes entranced by the dance and an eruption of applause and whoops from the whole venue, right down to all the staff!
Monday Night Party!
To wrap up our 5 nights of partying we have another dedicated social dancing evening.
From 8pm till late we'll have a non-stop set of some of the best Zouk tunes to make for an unforgettable final night.
As our final night it's only appropriate that we line up another amazing DJ set by DJ Kakah at one of Ubud's top party venues.
Buzzed from 5 amazing nights of parties, we still muster the energy for a final day of workshops.
As part of our final event wrap up there's a farewell buffet lunch on us!
This is where we chill poolside, eat lunch, swap details with new friends and farewell old ones!
What an adventure! Until next time...
