KIZOMBA MONTHLY PARTY - OTHER MONTHLY PARTIES

Next Party - 3rd August with guest teachers Trevor and Heidi
Maidenhead Rugby Club, Braywick Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1BN

Doors open 7.45pm - Midnight

Kizomba is a partner dance native to the African country of Angola, with influences from other Lusofone countries. It was first known as "Passada" (meaning "stepping" - a reference to the movement flow) and for having a sensuous rhythm. Although the exact origins are unknown, it is considered to be a fusion of Semba (a traditional Angolan dance and predecessor of samba) with 'Zouk' influences coming from the French Caribbean Islands.

Kizomba style now emphasizes a very smooth way of dancing, heavily influened by Tango steps, one of the main differences being that the lower body, the hip, does forward/backwards and circle movements.

The evening will start with a bonus Semba class at 7.45pm for level 2 and 3 dancers followed by 3 classes at 8.30pm for beginners, improvers and intermediate/advanced dancers. The intermediate/advanced class will be taught by our guest teacher for our June party - Iris de Brito. The DJ for the social part of the evening will be KoKo who will be playing the best in Kizomba, Semba and related until late.

Trevor and Heidi
As a couple, they are one of the most popular teachers on the Kizomba and Salsa circuit and it is a pleasure to once again welcome them to Bird Hills. Their smooth style is nowhere more evident that in their Kizomba classes where flow and good technique are the order of the day. As teachers they patient and attentive and as dancers they are always in demand.

Trevor is quite simply a teacher in super high demand. Trevor has been influenced and learnt from many great talents over the years; including Eddie Torres, Frankie Martinez, Homero Gonzales, Nelson Flores, Cobo Bros, Santo Rico and many more. Trevor has been given the nickname Sweetlead born from his unique ability to lead and inspire a distinctive effortless flow. Teaching Salsa / Kizomba / Cha Cha was a natural progression for Trevor.

Usually Trevor teaches for us with his very talented and gifted dance partner Heidi Ford. You will usually find Trevor dancing the night away at many of London’s best salsa clubs, especially Loudwater Salsa Club every Sunday. Very popular for his smooth and effortless leading style, hence why he has trademarked the name Sweetlead.
