This year the bootcamp will take place in beautiful city of Kosice 

15th – 24th July, 2022

Kukučínova 2
Košice, Slovakia

40 hours of zouk training with Val and Vanessa divided into 3 parts:

Block I – 16th – 17th July 2022 (first 10 hours of the Bootcamp)

Block II – 18th – 22nd July 2022 (next 20 hours of the Bootcamp)

Block III – 23rd – 24th July 2022 (additional 10 hours of Advanced training)

Block I + Block II = the main Bootcamp as you know it from previous editions. There will be 5 hours of classes per day and we will have one day off during the week for a beautiful trip together. The only reason we are dividing it into two parts is that we want to make it possible for people who cannot participate in the whole training to join the first two days which are happening during the weekend, so it is easier to join.

Block III = this is the additional 10 hours of training for Advanced dancers. The selection/approval process will be announced soon.

There will be social dancing and practice sessions during the Bootcamp.

ATTENTION!! This year, it is not an all-inclusive event. Each participant will have to take care of their accommodation and food during the bootcamp. We will post some recommendations once we have the location sorted out.

This bootcamp is not suitable for complete beginners and shouldn’t be a replacement of your regular study of zouk dance. This bootcamp should complement your studies of zouk.

Block I = 95 €
Blocks I + II = 350 €
Blocks I + II + III = 450 €

This year we do not have early bird price, but we do offer a few passes with discounted prices for dancers who cannot afford to pay the full price (especially applicable for people from Slovakia, Poland, Romania, etc. where salaries are lower than in other Europian countries). Feel free to write to us asking for a discout if this is too much for you!
