Connect, Create, and Communicate
A frame is the basis for how we communicate in partner dances. Learn the rules so you can lead and follow your partner effortlessly, including the differences between how we connect in zouk and WCS. Once you have the structure, we'll explore ways to actively listen and add character to your dance as a lead or follow. Explore how to inspire your partner, using patience in connection and musicality in your movement.

WHO IS XTINE?
Xtine is the founder of Brazilian Zouk in Seattle and the creator & event director of Seattle Dance Festival at the Center of the Universe. Her dance training began at the age of 3, with classical training in ballet, jazz, tap, musical theater, and later modern, pointe and hip-hop. She performed with two ballet companies in Seattle rising to the level of a soloist, occasionally doing her own choreography. At age 16 she started her partner dance career with salsa and bachata.
She began her teaching career in 2010 at Salsa Con Todo Dance Studio where she has taught ballet, jazz, salsa, bachata, kizomba, Brazilian Zouk, and West Coast Swing. West Coast Swing has made a profound impact on Xtine's connection, creativity, and style, and she promotes the fusion style of swouk wherever she goes. She recently won the Zouk Invitational division at Seattle Dance Festival 2016 and is a World Swing Dance Council (WSDC) recognized advanced WCS dancer.
