“Improve Quickly and Develop Confidence”

I had been to 1 or 2 Kizomba classes but I was very inexperienced. My reservations before starting were that my knowledge of Kizomba was limited and I didn’t know how quickly I could pick it up. The classes have been well structured with effective instruction to improve quickly and develop confidence in dancing. The best thing is definitely the improved confidence and meeting new people!

“My confidence has grown plus I’ve made some lovely friends”

I found ‘Dance Kizomba’ classes by word of mouth and haven’t looked back! I was initially worried about walking into a venue on my own and not knowing anyone. I needn’t have worried as everyone was friendly and welcoming. Its been a great consolidation and my confidence has grown plus I’ve made some lovely friends. I adore the music and at times I lose myself. The best thing about learning to dance Kizomba is the compliments – being told by several dancers that I am a responsive follower and the greatest compliment was that I “danced like a snowflake”!

Teaching Philosophy


CONNECTION
 – Kizomba as a dance, needs connection and respect between dancers. Connection comes from the way you hold your partner, the joined balance you need and the way you transfer that balance through the couple. It is strengthened through respect for your partner.

BASIC – The music – Kizomba comes from the music and feeling. Musicality combined with few and fluid rules in Kizomba allow for a million combinations of individual steps…Why not use them? Why not learn it from day one?

LANGUAGE – You wouldn’t talk another language to somebody that doesn’t understand it? Kizomba has its own language of movement conveyed though leading and following, the leads need to be clear and concise to be effective so the follower can understand. Equally, the faster the follower can decode the lead’s language the nicer and more interesting the dance can be.

ADAPTATION – As with spoken language sometimes things can be misunderstood. Whilst dancing we need to adapt to this and continue with a smooth correction or adaptation to enjoy the dance. Lots of beginners worry they have done something wrong, teaching them to adapt subdues this fear.

ENJOYMENT – There’s no point doing it if you don’t enjoy it. Steps should be exciting and enjoyable to learn not monotonous and discouraging. Different learning activities enable a creative, varied and fun atmosphere.
