A younger dance in our hemisphere, Kizomba is a dance that gains more impetus every passing day. Born in Angola from Semba, the word “kizomba” means “party” in the Kimbundu language. It features simple walking steps and a closer embrace. In modern times Kizomba has incorporated inspiration from ballroom dances like Tango and even hip-hop movements into its repertoire. A unique hip action sets this dance apart from the rest, as well as a wonderful emphasis on connection.
