Kizomba

Sensuality - Close embrace - Connection       

Kizomba is sometimes called the “African Tango”, as it takes its roots in Angola. This dance requires the most precise level of connection, as both partners dance in a close embrace. Far from the showy moves and tricks, Kizomba is designed for social dancing and deep connection. It focuses on the feeling and the communication between partners. When their synchronized movements reach harmony, they move as one, with infinite grace.
