Learn to partner dance in two and a half hours!
This is a great way to get yourself out of your comfort zone comfortably!
I love Kizomba……it’s an extremely beautiful and sensual dance style, it has the grace and passion of Tango but the softness and gentleness of a hug. The soulful music is melodious and explosive and captured my soul within minutes!
Kizomba is originally from Angola and is a descendent of Semba the original dance. It belongs in the Afro/Latin category of popular social dance styles danced all over Europe and the world.
Kizomba is a simple dance, its easy to learn quickly and will get you out on the dance floor! However it is equally intricate as it is simple and one can keep mastering it for as long as they want to keep refining and learning the art.A beginner will be dancing within an hour and then gradually evolve to the more complex steps and concepts of the dance which becomes rather addictive.
Through the Kizomba discipline you will also become more aware of your own body, posture and core, this will help you your everyday life as well as in your dancing skills.
Kizomba is perfect for anyone wanting to learn to partner dance and enter the huge social dancing world not only here in Brisbane but anywhere you may travel to.
Learn something new for yourself, or with friends guarantees to be fun and rewarding. There are many benefits to being perpetual learners and its one of the many secret tools of successful people, it keeps us fit in body and mind and you will have a great time!
Kizomba is incredibly addictive which is why its fast conquering the world! “I can teach anyone to dance” All left feet welcome!
