Kizomba is a style of dance and music that was created in Angola in the 1980's. Kizomba music is closely related to Zouk and is known for having a slow, sensuous rhythm that is the result of electronic percussion. Kizomba as a dance emphasizes a very smooth way of dancing combining African dances with Tango steps. People dance in a close embrace on the tempo, occasionally using syncopation steps. Kizomba dancing is very sensual: the music has a pulse that is easy to connect to. Once you start dancing, you can feel that pulse connect you to the music and your partner. No partner Required. Drop-ins welcome. Drop-in rate is $15 Pay in Person
