In the Dark – by Alex & Ksenia (Russia)

In the Dark, a unique blindfolded workshop that lasts from a few hours till few days. Participants wear special masks and see nothing 😉

It’s a combination of different exercises that helps you to (a) lead and follow easily, (b) feel better and figure out what’s comfortable for your partner and what’s not, (c) relax and release your emotions and go into connection.

In the Dark has made it already for 5 years in different cities and we have a lot of themes. During this retreat, we will focus on the technical and emotional sides of connection in a couple.

We will be combining this with Anderson & Brenda methodology so you will learn to utilise a powerful toolset for Brazilian Zouk. Get ready for 4 days 5 nights retreat in Belarus!

To be confirmed whether to make this all-inclusive with accommodation, meals, and non-alcoholic drinks. This is to be confirmed depending on the exact venue location in Belarus. The idea is to keep the cost down and make it affordable for most.

// Q & A

Q: Why hosting in Belarus and not in Russia?!
A: Belarus is Visa-free for both EU and Russian citizens. Therefore makes an ideal location to host international events that will help you keep costs down and planning your travel much easier. Please check because there may be stipulations on how the visa-free works. ie. must be via a flight at Minsk airport and not crossing the borders by car.

Q: What language will this be taught in?
A: English. To get the most out of this retreat, we expect competent English listening skills for maximum benefit.



I attended 5 days Zouk Dance Camp with Ludek and Monika organised by Hoi and Domi in Feb 2019. Ludek and Monika’s commitment to excellence was be seen throughout the boot camp starting with quality and professionalism. They focused on building confidence, encouraging movement, and nurturing a love of dance with the attention to detail, focus, and discipline.

I really enjoyed the Ludek and Monika boot camp. I got a lot of useful personal feedback and experienced a very comfortable learning environment. Hoi and Domi were very attentive and helpful. I will definitely attend more of their events!

Beautiful place, lovely crowd, and amazing teachers: Domi and Hoi did a wonderful job in creating a space to really dive into technique and work, each at their own pace, while also having time to take a break and relax! Can‘t wait to see u all again in June (with Brenda and Anderson)

I was at the first dance camp and the sittings and surroundings were really nice. They took good care of everybody and made sure everyone was happy. At the start the food wasn’t enough at lunch, but they did all they could to make it up again to get make sure we got enough. The dance was a really nice setup and really good instructors. I can highly recommend these types of event and the coordinators will make sure all have a good experience.

Been to Domi&Hoi’s project, who was absolutely incredible. A beautiful location, delicious food, good people and good vibes. Everyone involved in producing this amazing project really gives their heart and soul into it, and it’s clearly seen. I will definitely go to their events again, and I’d recommend that to everyone. Until next time! 😁

We had such an amazing group sharing the same goal and the same excitement about studying this beautiful and also hard technique. We helped each other for hours to release the hips and remember how to walk again. We didn’t just study together; we ate together, drank together, joked together, danced together, sang together, enjoyed the jacuzzi together… My little ZDC Family, I already miss you all so much!! I cannot imagine a better atmosphere to learn. We are extremely motivated to create a Brenderson army in Europe with the help of Hoi, Domi and the lovely Anderson & Brenda. See you guys in the next one!!

Hoi and Domi were excellent in organizing everything and making sure they were catering to the needs of the participants. I will seek out events organized by these two in the future.

Wauw is simply the best word to express my experience with Brenda and Anderson as teachers and Hoi and Domi as organisers. B&A’s teaching was so different from all the other teachers I have learned from. I was blown away of the simplicity and it was amazing how my dance changed during the week. “Figures” and movements that I always have learned with a frame and having tension suddenly became much easier when relaxing (a big part of B&A’ s teaching). Also, I enjoyed the air, water, earth concept which brought a totally new dimension to musicality. Finally, I was amazed by their explanation of how to use the hips – again very simple but so different from all other teachers.

The Anderson and Brenda week was simply incredible. I’ve learned so much and changed my way of dancing from the first day on. What we did, was not only for dancing but very much for ourselves. We learned how to relax and let go of the tension in our body and mind. We focused on different topics every day and put them all together in the end. This was so much more than just a dance class! I love the way how A&B teach and gave their best, to make our mind and our body understand. I swear, I was never as relaxed in my entire life as during this week and I wanted to stay there forever. I came back home, absolutely relaxed and with a very happy mind, 😊 I can’t wait for the next one! ❤️
