Kizomba is...

"An embrace means I don't feel threatened by you, I'm not afraid to be this close, I can relax, feel at home, feel protected and in the presence of someone who understands me. It is said that each time we embrace someone warmly, we gain an extra day of life."

A quote from Paul Coelho (one of my favorite authors) that describes for me what dancing kizomba is like.

ABOUT BOTIMINTOBotiminto means for the sake of tomorrow in Bissa, the language spoken in Zigla-Koulpélé, a small village in Burkina-Faso. ​Botiminto aims to motivate and incentivize students, especially those in primary, elementary and high school, to see education as the most viable way out of poverty. Many students face obstacles in their daily lives that hinder their academic success, thus creating an environment for them to prosper and motivating them to succeed would be invaluable.
