While Kizomba is starting to take the world by storm, it is still an emerging genre in many countries; so don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of it. Kizomba comes from Africa, mainly Angola and Cape Verde (where it is called Passada - meaning steps or a pattern of sequential steps). The word ‘Kizomba’ is derived as a linguistic expression from the local Angolan slang Kimbundo meaning ‘party’.
Kizomba is a beautiful partner dance described as an African tango due to its mix of Afro body movement and Tango-esque patterns that is danced to Zouk music. It’s both beautiful and deceivingly technical and a joy to learn and dance. Tropical Soul has been one of the strongest ambassadors of Kizomba in Australia - offering continuous Kizomba classes since 2012!
DRESS CODE: There is no specific dress code for this class, and people usually wear casual clothes. For the shoes, ladies can wear flats or heels, as long as they are comfortable to dance in for one hour, and also ensuring they have an ankle strap or are well fitted to the feet so they don’t slip out as you dance or turn.
