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.

Let's Get this Party Started Seattle

Its been a little quiet on the home front as the new year celebrations have ended and everyone is slowly coming back from vacations, trips, holidays  and eye surgery (that's me :) and you can read that side story here).

So, let's get this party going!!!

We have our first dance of 2013 at Wad's coming up on Friday, January 25th (information here).

Quickly following that, Ivo Vieira and Shani Mayer will be visiting Seattle for the first time February 1 - 3 to share their knowledge and love for the dance. We'll have a weekend full of kizomba so come out for some or all of it and bring your friends with you.

The weekend will begin with 2013's first 1st Friday Kizomba Dance (2/1) at the Century Ballroom in East Hall. There will be another dance on Saturday night (2/2) at LimelightAND weekend workshops on Saturday and Sunday (2/2 - 2/3). We have a few visitors from out of town - our friend in Vancouver BC and the Tri-Cities will be coming so get you kizomba groove ready because its going to be a loaded weekend.

Following that on 2/9, Kenny Davis-Ntolla will be visiting from Montreal. There will be a welcome party and dance to kick things off on Friday 2/8. Following a night of dancing, he will be teaching workshops on Afro-Cuban fusion, Salsa and Kizomba on Saturday 2/9 at the Salsa N Seattle Studio.

That's a triple header folks (um, in case you're not a sports fan, that's a sports reference) - three weekends in a row.

Stay warm out there! HUGS
