Course Details

Kizomba is both a style of dance and a style of music. The kizomba is a sensual partner dance developed in Angola from the late 1980′s to early 1990′s.

It is a fusion of Semba (the predecessor of samba), Tango, and Zouk (from the French Caribbean Islands). Kizomba music is derived directly from Zouk music and is sung, generally, in Portuguese. It is a romantic genre of music mixed with African rhythm.

Kizomba’s popularity is growing rapidly in Europe, and other parts of the world. It is finally taking over the west and east coast of the US. For those who have never danced, Kizomba is easily accessible. The basics are simple.

For those who are currently dancing partner dances such as salsa, bachata, and merengue, Kizomba is a breath of fresh air. You’ll find it comfortable to slip into, and challenging enough to keep you dancing it for years to come.
