Originally from Angola, Africa and derived from the word Kimbundo which means party and Semba, another dance style. Kizomba emerged as a way to express emotion about what was happening/what was being felt in Portugal during the Angolan Civil War and the War with Portugal. Comprised of two partners who begin the two step movements in half time to music that strongly resembles the Latin Merengue, dance movements focus heavily on sensual hip rolls and hip movements. Because the Kizomba dance steps begin with basic choreography, it is the sound of the music that encourages the body movements. Over time, Traditional Kizomba has morphed into Urban, Modern, and Fusion Kizomba, among other styles.

"The Kizomba class at CAC was a great experience for me and my friend. We came in stumbling and stepping on each others' feet and ended up learning all the basic moves, foundational Kizomba saida, turning, and even the lean/dip. Alexandria was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor that was able to give us a lot of personalized feedback and general dance knowledge that I am sure will be applicable to other forms of dance. Kizomba is a lot of fun and I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn the basics of partnered dance!"
