THURSDAY KIZOMBA CLASSES (Maidenhead) - OTHER WEEKLY CLASSES

Link to Beginners courses in Kizomba

New 6 week courses start on the 4th January (Maidenhead) 2017

Dance2salsa are proud to present our weekly Kizomba classes run by our Dance2Kizomba team.

Kizomba is a partner dance native to the African country of Angola, with influences from other Lusofone countries. It was first known as "Passada" (meaning "stepping" - a reference to the movement flow) and for having a sensuous rhythm.

Although the exact origins are unknown, it is considered to be a fusion of Semba (a traditional Angolan dance and predecessor of samba) with 'Zouk' influences coming from the French Caribbean Islands.

In the 80's groups like Kassav or Zouk Machine infused a fast paced and more African influenced sound into the music. In recent times the style has become slightly slower and more romantic and the influence of other dance styles like Tango are clearly visible.

Kizomba style now emphasizes a very smooth way of dancing, heavily influened by Tango steps, one of the main differences being that the lower body, the hip, does forward/backwards and circle movements.

People dance on the tempo, as well as playing on the off beat and only sometimes using syncopated steps. Repetitive steps and patterns provide a clear platform for teaching this dance form in a skilled manner.
