Zouk in Stockholm
Niklas Valenti, dancer, teacher and choreographer. He has worked with contemporary dance and theater since 2005. His first dance roots in Hip Hop / breaking and then in Contact Improvisation, which became the gateway to contemporary dance. Since 2005, Niklas has also studied the Feldenkrais Method and the Alexander technique, two techniques, both of which have had a major influence on how I think about the movement and learning.
ABOUT CONTACT IMPROVISATION
Contact Improvisation is a form of improvised dancing developed internationally since 1972.Formally, Contact Improvisation is a movement improvisation mainly explored in duets. According to one of its first practicioners, Nancy Stark Smith, it « resembles other familiar duet forms, such as the embrace, wrestling, surfing, martial arts, and the jitterbug, encompassing a wide range of movement from stillness to highly athletic. » A good tool to improve your social dancing where the contact is crucial
Kris Leczek is a well know name and face among Zoukers, and Bachateros who travel to congresses, since he is often hired as DJ for these as DJ SoulZouk. He teaches also Zouk on regular basis. Kris started his career as a Bachata DJ and Instructor before starting with Zouk.
ABOUT THE SOUL METHOD
Soulzouk is a METHODOLOGY based on the premise that respects the fundamental principles of human movement performance. The ideal is the execution of high performance movements with less energy expenditure as possible, according to Biomechanics.
Soulzouk is a set of tools for the students to develop THEMSELVES, so he/she understands how his/her body works and what are their strong points and which points needs more attention and dedication. A very good complement to traditional ZOUK/BACHATA classes, since it is based on individual conditions.
