Watching a performance to a drum solo can be truly hypnotising! The dancer imitates and follows the music so closely as to almost become one with the beat. Pops, locks and shimmies reflect the rhythms and the dancer needs to have great control of her technique in order to achieve sharp movements. It’s very energetic and playful too. Join us in KP3 where we’ll be focusing on the ‘dums’ and ‘taks’ of the drum solo!

We’re excited that ZeoT Zürich is again one of the locations for the Zürich Tanzt festival. In addition to crash courses, we’ll also be hosting a Hafla with performances on Saturday 4th May in ZeoT Zürich studios plus dancing in “So tanzt die Welt” at Zürich Hauptbahnhof.  Read our newsletter for more details plus find out about the workshops and events we have planned for the next few months.


ALIA & the ZeoT team are looking forward to dancing with you in KP3!

KP3: 29.04. - 23.06.2019

FlamenContempOriental WORKSHOP SERIES

contemporary flamenco zürich

You love oriental dance and you’re curious how you could fuse it in an organic way with other dance styles? Get ready for FlamenContempOriental!

Rachida Aharrat and Salima developed the idea 3 years ago seeking something different. Their common point was oriental dance and each one of them added her specialty: Rachida has a strong background in contemporary dance, Salima in flamenco.

Spend a full  weekend immersed in this special dance training, open your mind and discover new ideas about how to enrich your dance with new elements.

FlamenContempOriental - RACHIDA AHARRAT & SALIMA


belly dance teacher training zurich

The learning-by-teaching effect has been demonstrated in many studies. Students who spend time teaching what they’ve learned go on to show better understanding and knowledge retention than students who simply spend the same time re-studying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our teacher training further education is valuable for you not only in becoming a teacher but as a dancer too! As you help your students progress you’ll also be consolidating your own knowledge and improving your own technique. Win win for all!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We even have some applications from students who don’t want to go on and teach but know that through going through the process of learning how to teach, they’ll deepen their own knowledge & improve their technique in ways they might not experience in a regular class.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ZeoT's Further Education for belly dance teachers will fill your teaching toolbox and give you a clear structure which you can use to teach oriental dance. Different ways of correcting posture, how to create choreography for the class or semester planning are on the program as well as valuable inputs from experts from Body Conditioning, Yoga, Franklin method, ballet and humour training. The course involves ‘live’ teaching experience in an introductory course and begins in September 2019.

Further information and requirements for application to join the course can be found here.
