Kizomba is a beautiful partner dance from Portuguese-speaking West Africa that is taking the world by storm. If you want to learn to dance Kizomba, join us weekly. Classes focus on Connection, Musicality, and FUN, all elements of great Social Dancing. Our students learn to dance to ALL styles of Kizomba music, with a strong foundation of basics. Classes meet every Monday and Thursday night. Every Thursday night, we have our popular Kizomba social. Don't forget to bring your friends. This is the Bay Area's ORIGINAL and longest running (4+ years) Kizomba program.

Here is a video featuring your instructors (filmed in Milan):
