Kizomba is taking the UK by storm this year, and is one of the fastest growing styles of dance and music in the country.

The word Kizomba means “to party” in one of Angola's national languages. Hypnotic beats, mellow moves, it is essentially Angolan by origin but is parallel to salsa in that it results from a cultural mix: African influences (Angolan Semba), colonial influences (Tango and Milonga imported by the Portuguese) and Zouk music (East Caribbean Islands – Guadeloupe, Martinique, Dominica, St Lucia, Haiti). If you like the sensuality of Dominican Bachata, multiply it by 10 and you get Kizomba.

We are very lucky to welcome HERNANI GABRIEL for this workshop in Cambridge. Hernani is one of the raising UK stars for Kizomba teaching, someone with a communicative enthusiasm, who does what he does because he deeply likes it.

"Kizomba is a delight to watch and incredibly stimulating to dance. It's a way to express one's authenticity as a person as well as emotions such as happiness, love and sensuality, through this urge we all share; the passion for dance." --Hernani Gabriel
