Learn how to dance Kizomba:
Learning to dance in a private Kizomba lesson means progressing up to 4 times faster than in a group dance class.
Origins of Kizomba :
The Kizomba dance and its musical genre were born recently. However, it arrived in Europe in the 30s. It is a rhythm that was commercialized in the 70s. The Zouk emerged, a word that means party !
However, some authors say that Kizomba is a mixture of Samba and Zouk. Others think that since the musical basis is the same for Zouk as for Kizomba, one should look for differences in the language in which the music is sung. The tempo and the variation of the movements depends on the instruments that appear throughout the music. Also in the more or less soft and sensual interpretation of the singer.
What is certain is that Kizomba is developing rapidly, promoted above all by immigration. It spreads first in Puerto Rico (mixed with Reggaeton and Reggae), then in Europe, the United States and Brazil.
How to dance Kizomba?
The Kizomba dance is slow. Romantic and of course sensual, it is danced to the rhythm of the percussions that occur regularly throughout the song. The compass is binary, with a metric of 4/4. That is to say, there is a high beat (which would be our “one” in the count), three weaker ones (two very close together) and the third one backwards, counting up to eight to reach a didactic form of numbers. In short, this dance counts to eight beats.
The posture of both partners is closed. Both dancers have their torso together and almost constant contact of hips and legs, except in some figures. The male right arm wraps around the female’s waist. The woman passes her left arm around the man’s neck, as long as her size allows it, in which case he may place his left hand on the man’s biceps.
The man’s left hand is in contact with the woman’s right, which allows him to move (as in all Latinos dances) at this rhythm.
We know how, in the slang of the dance, to make the boat. The man gives the indications of the steps, the orientations and the marks of the movements by guiding his partner with his torso, arms, left hand and hip. Like most couple dances, the woman follows and enhances the dance with more graceful movements than the man does. It is above all the fusion of two dancing partners that makes the dance surprising and beautiful to watch.
Private Kizomba dance lessons with DanseTousStyles :
Join our private Kizomba classes and discover this new passion for dance. Kizomba is a style of dance that is slow, rhythmic and sensual at the same time. Kizomba is generally danced with a partner who moves at the same rhythm as you, in a “wavy” movement.
The dance is characterized by its connection – depending on the level of intimacy between a couple. Kizomba can be danced as an extremely tight dance with slow and sensual movements. This requires a sense of complicity between man and woman. Or, this style of dance can be danced in an open position with more footwork and faster steps and movements. Nevertheless, the positive point of this dance is that the couple decides how they want to perform to the music.
Learn to dance as a couple, whether you attend the class alone or as a couple. Learn faster by improving with a teacher who is specialized in that style. A customized follow-up with a coach assigned according to your request (objectives to be reached, hobbies…).
The partner teachers of Danse Tous Styles are specialized and experienced in their own style.

Kizomba Private Lessons vs. Group Lessons
What are the advantages of a private Kizomba class compared to a group class?
First of all, know that you can dance directly with the dance professional. Whether you participate in the class alone or with two people, you can be corrected automatically. This is one of the biggest advantages of a private Kizomba class as opposed to a group class.
You can thus acquire the right skills right from the start.
Unlike a group class, in a private Kizomba class, you have the teacher at your entire disposal. Therefore, you progress at your own pace, with exercises adapted to your level, but also to your desires and your objectives. A private Kizomba class is the opposite of a group class where the teacher cannot afford to correct each student.
In a private Kizomba class, in just a few hours, you can acquire the same results as a school year in a group class in order to acquire the basics.
By choosing to take private Kizomba lessons, you save a significant amount of time.
Private Kizomba lessons ? Other advantages :
The other advantage of taking a private Kizomba class over a group class is that you can adapt your classes to fit your schedule, which means that you limit your absences from classes and don’t have to block a regular slot as you would in a group class.
One of the other advantages is that you can do the lessons at home. This means that you can have a private lesson at home, any day of the week. Lessons can therefore take place even during strikes or holidays.
