What is Kizomba?
A wonderful and calm couple dance, which has arisen in the meeting between Caribbean zouk music and dance and music from the Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa – Angola, Cap Verde, Mozambique and Guinea Bissau. the dance style is a dense, elegant and rhythmic dance.
If you are a novice in couple dancing, this dance style is a great place to start as the basic steps are simple and calm. If you are already familiar with couple dancing but miss new inspiration in the form of a close-knit, comfortable dance with nuanced communication between driver and followers and room for personality and spontaneity, then Kizomba is also for you.
Some describe Kizomba as African tango because the dance is improvised and based on walking steps and can alternate between different tempi and pauses. Kizomba is also akin to Salsa and Bachata because the dance is social, festive and strongly based on rhythm. But compared to Salsa and Bachata, Kizomba is more African and down to earth in nature.
