Kizomba and Semba
Semba and Kizomba are cultural partner dances from Angola, Africa. Kizomba translates to the word "party" in Kimbundu. Its roots stem from the dance Semba. Semba is the mother of all three styles and is characterized by it's outward joyful energy. Kizomba is influenced in its flavor and motion from Semba. Music associated with Kizomba is often energetic, percussive with a warm combination of instrumentals and vocals. In both Semba and Kizomba partners hold are centered on grounded connection. The signature pattern of movement is focused on circular shapes. Connection is key to learning how to smoothly glide around the dance floor with your partner!
Urban Kizomba, or Urban Kiz, is style of dance derived from Kizomba and danced to contemporary music. The music is heavily influenced by various genres (ghetto zouk, zouk, R&B, hip hop, etc.).
