No Question Is Too Small

How do I know which classes to take? For all classes, please read the full class descriptions to ensure you are eligible for the class you would like to sign up for. In addition, please view our curriculum page. If you are not sure what classes/level is suitable for you, please send us a message or email us at: Christina@ZoukOC.com Level 1 - Intro If you are a new or beginner level dancer, we recommend you start at the Introductory level. The reason why we recommend beginners to start at this level is because the level of detail you will receive in this (and all of our classes) is very high and the class sizes are small so you will receive personal feedback on the details that make your dance polished. This level will set you up with the best foundation possible for other classes. Level 2 - Fundamentals Must have completion of Level 1 classes: Zouk From Zero (Open Holds) AND Zouk From Zero (Close Holds) Level 3 - Variations Please message us for approval before joining the class if you have not met the prerequisite classes listed on the class description. Level 3 requires completion and test out of level 2.

What happens if I miss a class? For those who must miss a class, we have a few options to make sure you don’t fall behind:  For each class you are enrolled in, you will receive access to weekly recap videos. Whether you miss class or not, we recommend you review the detailed weekly recap videos  to get the most out of your learning.   At the beginning of each class, we review what we learned the previous week! So if you check the recap you will be familiar with the material we will review. Class sizes are limited capacity, giving you the ability to receive one-on-one feedback during that review time and practice so you can get it right!  If you feel you need more help, join us for a Practica session and receive feedback during Practica, If no Practica is offered for the month, message Christina to see how you can get personalized feedback about the week missed!

Can I re-take a class and/or take multiple classes at once? YES and YES! The level of detail in each class is enough to understand it the first time, but really internalize the juicy details the second or third time. It is actually highly encouraged to repeat courses in order to achieve the material at your highest potential and we offer 25% OFF when you repeat a course. Contact us for your discount!  As long as you meet the prerequisite to take the class/ classes you wish, you are welcome to take more than one class offered at once!

How do I join a waitlist? Class sizes are limited in most classes. If the class you wish to join is not available at this time or full you can join the waitlist.  More info about joining a class waitlist coming soon! *Please read the full class description to ensure you are eligible and the class level is suitable for you.
