What is Kizomba?

Kizomba is a style of music, and a beautiful partner dance, developed in Lusophone (Portuguese Speaking) Africa from the late 1980′s to early 90′s. Kizomba music, born as a fusion of African rhythms and Caribbean Zouk, is a romantic genre generally sung in Portuguese. Kizomba’s popularity is growing rapidly in Europe, and other parts of the world.

For novices and experienced dancers alike, Kizomba is a breath of fresh air. The basics are easy to slip into, yet, Kizomba is challenging enough to keep anyone dancing it for years. The pleasure of social dancing is available much faster than with other types of partner dances. We are proud to help introduce Kizomba in North America.
