KIZOMBA MONTHLY PARTY - OTHER MONTHLY PARTIES

Next Party - 2nd November with guest teacher Iris de Brito
Maidenhead Rugby Club, Braywick Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1BN

Doors open 8.15pm - 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 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 November 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.
