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.

Hello! My name is Alexandria and dancing is my passion! I enjoy sharing various dance styles with others because dancing makes me feel alive, helps me build confidence, and promotes positive energy.
I started dancing in 2018 and have since then, taught classes, performed, and increased my skills via attending various workshops and classes. My favorite dance style is Brazilian Zouk, however I also dance Kizomba and Bachata.
