KIZOMBA COPENHAGEN

Kizomba is a recent virus taking over Europe and other continents by storm with it´s slow and sensual style. The dance, unlike any other, has lot of technique and fundamental structure and can take you to “heaven” if done the right way. 

ABOUT KIZOMBA: history and styles

Kizomba is a dance and music that was created in Angola in early 1980s.It is also performed in other lusophone African countries, in Europe and in USA. It is known for having a slow, insistent, somewhat harsh, yet sensuous rhythm; the result of electronic percussion. It is ideally danced accompanied by a partner, very smoothly and slowly, though not too tightly. A rather large degree of flexibility in the knees is required, owing to the frequent requirement that dancers bob up and down.
