🌲 We are super excited to announce that the Lambada Viva retreat & intensive with Leo and Ana will return, MAY 30-JUNE 5 2023!! ⛰️
The purpose of this retreat is to help experienced Zoukers add Lambada to their dance. If you’ve wanted to learn Lambada but found it difficult in the past (or if you’re planning a trip to Brazil and want to prepare for it), this is for you!
🌲 12 hours of instruction for each group
🌲 Practicas/socials every night
🌲 Catered meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner
🌲 Lodging for the full 6 days
There will be 2 tracks this time around. Please read through the following descriptions of the tracks to decide which is best for you.
👉 BELEM DO PARA (Where It Starts)
Designed for experienced zouk dancers, the Belem do Para Track is an intensive, advanced training program that will move through fundamental moves of Lambada at a fast pace. The curriculum will be modeled off of last year’s advanced training program.
To get the most out of this course, it is recommended that you have a minimum of THREE years of zouk experience and are comfortable leading or following advanced Zouk sequences. This track will teach at an accelerated pace, and is designed for experienced zouk dancers.
👉 PORTO SEGURO (Where It Develops)
This training program is intended as a "part two" for people who have already completed the advanced training program in last year’s retreat, or who have equivalent Lambada proficiency. If you did not complete last year’s advanced course, approval from Léo and Ana is REQUIRED. We will continue where we left off, focusing on adding more complicated sequences to our repertoire.
👉 In BOTH tracks, you will be paired with one person and will work with the same partner throughout the course (no partner rotation). You can register with someone or register alone and have a partner assigned to you later.
