☆ WHO SHOULD SIGN UP?
Anyone interested in improving your zouk technique. There are different levels, so there's something for everyone. Class sizes are limited so you can get personal feedback. You can consider retaking a class you’ve taken before to help refine and improve your technique.


☆ WHY TAKE A PROGRESSIVE CLASS?
This is an opportunity to learn with a consistent group of people where each week's material builds on what was taught the previous week.


☆ WHERE ARE CLASSES LOCATED?
All classes are at DanceSport Dupont Circle, in the Fellowship Hall of the Church of the Pilgrims (2201 P St NW, Washington, DC).


☆ QUESTIONS?
Ask any of our instructors which class is right for you.

The practica will run 7-9:30pm, with the Jack & Jill at 7:30pm.
