Kizomba musicality

Listen and feel the music: Kizomba is a dance of feeling, so listening and feeling to the music is very important.  It’s less about counting steps, and more about movement and connection. How you connect to the music and how you connect with your partner is essential. Unlike Salsa where there is a large emphasis on counts, Kizomba is more about the music; therefore, understanding the music will help improve your dancing!

Kizomba tarraxinha

Tarraxinha is in contrast to Kizomba danced rather on the spot. It shifts the weight from one leg to the other. Tarraxinha is quieter and give you time to focus on a variety of hip movements: side, central or waving. Is common to all hip movements, however, that it comes to the part (on Kimbundu lovingly “Mbunda” called) presenting your back out  – and not in the direction of the partner. Tarraxinha is well suited to interpreting rhythms. “Tarraxar” is Portuguese and literally means “screw”.

Semba

Semba is a dance and music style from Angola. It has been mixed up with brazilian music by the slaves. In Angola, Kizomba has its roots in Semba. Semba you dance like Kizomba, but much faster!
