There is changing rooms for men and ladies available if you wish to slip in to something a little bit more comfortable! Remember to bring indoor shoes, especially in rainy weather 🌩
In the main class we will focus on how to dance in couples. We will rotate partners so everyone gets to dance and get experience to practice the material with different partners. We start the class with Urban Kizomba basic techniques and during the class we build on this techniques with steps and styling. In the end of the class we present a fun challenge, a trick or step that will give even the most experienced dancers something to work on.
We call this format “Progressive” format and welcome newbies as well as more experienced dancers. Our goal is to get each and every one of our students to get moving to the music in the first minutes of the class! We are all here to have fun regardless of our level.
After our class we invite everyone to enjoy dancing together to all of the awesome kinds of music we can dance to. We will also play Kizomba and Semba music from Angola as well as other styles from our community like Tarraxo and Douceur.
