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.

Kizomba Seattle - Mexico Exchange April 4 - 6, 2014

That's right: Frances Tee and Jay Senior are headed to Mexico to teach, dance, get to know and have fun with the kizomba community in Mexico!

We'll be there April 4 - 6, 2014 and you can come and join us there for a mini dance vacation. You don't need to be from Seattle to come - anyone is welcome. Just make sure you book your flights and contact Frances Tee to get your housing match with someone in the local Kizomba Mexico community. Also, RSVP on the facebook event.


Mexico City as a growing community of kizomba dancers that's hungry for more information and excited to dance. We would like to invite you to join us and travel to Mexico to meet this enthusiastic and growing community. There will be weekend workshops taught on Saturday and Sunday along with dances and practicas Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Remember back when you first got your kizomba bug and how much of a difference it made to dance with people that already had experience dancing kizomba? Come and get to know, dance with and enjoy kizomba with a community that's starting to come into its own. Expect to be dancing till 3am!

You'll have to pay for the tour and socials, food and any other gifts or souvenirs. Friday's activities will cost about US$20 (tour, transport, lunch and practica) and the dances are US$5.

Taxis in Mexico City run about $4 for 10-15 minute of travel.

On average, meals will run between US$5 and US$10 - 15 for more touristy or high end places.


Warm spring; the city is at a higher altitude so bring something for the evenings as the temperature does drop (high 50's/lo 60's). It will be warmer during the day (high 70's/lo 80's).
