Oh my god where do I even begin? Devon is, and always was, an awesome person and a great teacher. Every class makes me feel like I'm being taken gently by the hand, constantly soothed with humor and charm as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, AKA Zouk head movements. She breaks it down so simply, using concepts from every day life and tips that were surely earned through years and years of experience as a dancer. She makes complex movements attainable for everyone who has the will to learn and practice. 10 out of 5 recommend.

Devon Near-Hill is an amazing teacher and dancer! I really enjoyed her EFO course and look forward to continuing to learn from her. She is so genuine, which is something I value VERY highly in my teachers--fun, creative, and always brings joy out of her "mistakes." I love how brightly her personality and genuine spirit shine through even distance/online learning! Not to mention, she has years of experience with zouk and other dance forms, beautiful technique and flow, and such a bright energy. Thank you for the learning, feedback, and laughter you brought me during this time when I wasn't very inspired to dance or train❤️

In science, the validity of a unified model is judged on its capability to answer not only the question its developers set out to explain, but it's ability to predict the solutions to problems they never intended to solve. That is exactly my feeling after attending Deconstructing Zouk. So many frustrating problems in my dance magically disappeared when I applied the concepts we learned. I'm exceptionally grateful for the wonderful instructors and hosts that made it possible.
