Cold Fusion – Zouk meets Blues

Join our group of warm-hearted dancers at our very special fusion week-end of classes and parties for all levels and types of experience.

For this weekend we are focusing on mixing Blues Dancing with Brazilian Zouk. Whether you come from Blues or Zouk or other dance styles, you will find something to inspire you and elevate your dancing. Three international teachers are ready to get you moving.


Fusion Dancing invites people from different dance styles to mix up and to dance together. The dance is not based on predefined steps and movements instead the focus is put on the connection between the partners and/or the music. Dancers create together an experimental dance style. Fusion can be danced to multiple different music styles.


We will have parties all three nights, starting on Friday with a party to warm us all up to the idea of “Cold Fusion”. Pun intended.
There will be a pre-dance class by Flouer introducing you to some fusion concepts so you can have fun right away.
Saturday will be our big blow-out party (almost as big as a true cold fusion reaction). And Sunday we will send everyone off with the best vibes at our cozy fusion house party.


We will be working all together for four hours each day. Saturday we will get the Zouk dancers to groove into Blues dancing, and get the Blues dancers flowing into the Zouk world. Seeing where our dances can overlap and morph and how we can share movement together. Everyone will have something to share, and a lot to learn! It is recommended that you attend all the classes even if you already have some experience in one of the dances.

Sunday we will continue meshing our beautiful dances together into one, and also go outside the box with all sorts of fusion dance goodness.

She has won plenty of partner dance competitions in various styles, and has performed & taught all over the globe.
But what is important is that Flouer has a warm, encouraging personality in class. She is known for her values of artistry and personal expression, complimented by her ability to break down any movement into incredibly specific detail.

She is especially known for offering simple ways to give structure and easy access to all these free dance(s). Using imagery, anatomy, rhythm, embodiment, and concepts, Flouer will build your dance from the ground up; all the while teaching you about the music you are listening to, the related dance cultures, and why a movement became what it is today.

Alain Andrieux

Alain became obsessed with dance 20+ years ago. His main styles: Blues (which he teaches in London) and Argentine Tango. These days he also dances Brazilian Zouk and Kizomba, and has significant past experience in Contact Improv, Salsa, Forro, Hip-hop/Funk, etc. As a teacher Alain is known for technical precision, and re-evaluates his understanding and pedagogy regularly. He has taught at Blues, Fusion and NeoTango events around Europe and a bit in the USA.

He loves nerding out about dance history, rhythms, music theory, and more. Being French he also loves eating cheese. That’s not dance-related, but a very nice activity too.

She also has an extensive background, teaching, and performing in belly dancing, certified MAC Brazilian zouk teacher, Improv and abundant of other partner/solo/group dances from around the world.
