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.

Enjoy your Holiday Season

2012 is coming to an end and we've had quite a year of kizomba in Seattle.

We went from having a dance once a month to 3 additional venues: Limelight on Monday (rotating with salsa and bachata), Tuesday night practice, Bachata Dance on Wednesdays and Last Friday at Waid's. Kizomba is also being played at other dance socials to change up the pace: at the Century Ballroom on some salsa nights, at the Salsa Con Todo Social on Friday nights.

Kizomba class series continue to be hosted by the Century Ballroom. Classes offered; Kizomba 1, Kizomba 2 and Kizomba Lab.

Kizomba was featured in the Seattle Salsa Congress this past Thanksgiving and there was great turnout and support for the dance. 

Seattle hosted some great kizomba instructors who helped us to learn and grow: Joao Rocha, Mafalda Amado, Oscar BA, Eddy Vents, Sara Lopez, Albit Rojas and last (though certainly not least) Kwenda  Lima. 

With the year coming to a close and the holidays fast approaching here's what's left and what to look forward t in 2013:

  • Kizomba Lab on 12/16: Musicality and Debugging the Saida
  • Kizomba Practice on Tuesday 12/18 (last one of the year!)

Happy Holidays and see you out dancing!
