William Wegert

William Wegert started his movement journey at the age of 7 when he was enrolled in a martial arts program. Three years later he received his first degree Black Belt, and at the age of 18, received his 4th degree Black Belt

Professionally trained to teach starting at the age of 8, teaching as a part time job at 14, and as a full time career at 16, William has taught thousands of hours of group and private lessons, to both children and adults. 

His super power is balancing intricate detail, and “keeping it simple.”

When he started in Bachata, he found himself learning to slow down and even breathe with his dance partners. Naturally finding his way into Zouk where it took over his entire world. Daily training for years and constantly seeking out the knowledge of others has led him to becoming an international Zouk instructor within 4 years of his journey. Now having taught in multiple countries and at many esteemed dance festivals in Brazil, William travels the world sharing his love and passion for dance. His two most important values within dance and teaching is growth and connection. 

One of the greatest lessons he’s learned through his journey in dance has been, “It’s not about what you do, but about how you do it.” This has brought him to focus more on conceptualizing the dance, rather than, “patternizing” the dance.

The question? How can we have the body awareness of both ourselves and our partner, bringing the greatest sensation into the dance? How can we find ourselves completely lost in presence and time with our partner?
