What is Kizomba?

About Kizomba

Kizomba is beautiful couple dance from Angola that originated in the 1980s. The actual word "Kizomba" means party in Kimbundu language. The dance is characterized by the flow of movements, the body movement of the dancers known as ginga and bonga, the embrace of the partners and the expression of the music through dancing with your partner. 


Kizomba the music was greatly influenced by Antillean Zouk. Today Kizomba is widely a mix of Semba and Zouk rhythms. Due to the popularity of Kizomba dance and music spreading throughout the world. New music genres have been created underneath the Kizomba Umbrella. At our parties we play Kizomba, Semba, Ghetto Zouk, Caribbean Zouk, Coladeira, Cabo-Zouk, Cabo-Love, Douceur and many more. 

Weekly Group Classes

We believe attending our weekly Dance classes in Orlando is the backbone of any Kizomba experience. In group classes, you'll get to socialize, make new friends and be able to try out moves with numerous partners. This ensures that you'll be able to either execute or follow a move in a social dance setting.

Workshops

We will organize workshops throughout the year to focus on specific aspects of Kizomba and Semba. They are either taught in house or an out of state instructor is brought in to teach the workshop. These workshops complement our weekly group classes. Some of the workshops focus on Tarraxinha, body movement, dips and tricks, semba show and many other topics.

You'll get 1 on 1 instruction tailor made to you. You'll also get direct feedback on your strengths, weaknesses and what you can do to improve.

Social dancing and Group Outings

Social dancing on the dance floor is where you put everything together. We have numerous dance events locally where you can practice what you've learned. We also believe in having group outings around Central Florida. This helps us get to know each other off the dance floor and is a good way to have fun. We firmly believe in implementing all 4; weekly goup classes, private lessons, bootcamps and social dancing to take your dancing to the next level.
