Every Thursday evening from 8-9pm we have Kizomba dance night …… both lessons and dancing at the café.
Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance and music originating from Angola. It is a derivative of Semba, with a mix of Kilapanda and Angolan Merengue, and sung generally in Portuguese. It is music with a romantic flow. It was the Kimbundu name for a dance in Angola as early as 1894 and is one of the growing dances in the UK at the moment.
Classes start at 8pm sharp and last for an hour – One class for all abilities led by renowned Kizomba dancer, Daniel Bowman.
Focus on the lesson is musicality driven rather than routine based classes. Guest teachers of different Kizomba genres are invited to lead the lessons from time to time.
Social dancing starts at 9 pm and finishes at 11 pm. We have our very own in-house DJ ….. DJ Visser playing a blend of Kizomba, Ghetto Zouk, Semba, Retro Zouk and Urban Kiz depending who is on the dancefloor.
There is a flat fee cost of £5 for class and/or social. Our dance club runs an honesty box rather than a door person. The honesty box is on the DJ Stand.
