In 2013 Carmen discovered an Angolan Dance called Kizomba - she fell in love. "I’m from the first generation of Kizomba dancers in Seattle and have had the privilege of learning from many International dancers at the top of the Kizomba Dance scene." She started teaching Kizomba in 2017 and did some intensive workshops in Mexico. After her return, she started teaching Kizomba team at Salsa Con Todo. "My approach to Kizomba always focuses strongly on connection. I’m in charge of the Kizomba program at the Studio and hope to see it grow many generations of dancers to come." The Kizomba program at SCT is a complete program including all dances under the Kizomba Umbrella: Semba, Kizomba, Urban Kiz, Tarraxinha, and Tarraxa Osteo.
"I would also like to expose the students to the many genres of music we dance Kizomba to which is why I decided to start Djing.
My Passion for dance extends to all areas of dance and types of music, it’s a lifestyle! I am forever a Dance Student! I can only hope to transmit my knowledge and experience to other dancers and students and help them do it with naturality and flair."
