About Kizomba History
Kizomba comes from Africa – the Luso-African countries mainly Angola and Cape Verde (where it is called Passada = meaning steps or a pattern of sequential steps).
The word ‘Kizomba’ is derived as a linguistic expression from the local Angolan slang Kimbundo meaning ‘party’. Kizomba is essentially a partner dance that is danced in social events and has gained immense popularity as a nightly attraction within the dance scene in Europe mainly Portugal (Capital of Kizomba in Europe), UK, Denmark, France, Poland and Spain just to name a few. One could call it the ‘African Tango’.
The dance is characterized by its Connection – depending on the level of intimacy between a couple it can be danced as an extremely close dance with slow and sensual movements, requiring a sense of complicity between the man and the woman. Or alternatively, it can be danced in an open position with more open footwork and faster steps and tricks. Nonetheless, the great thing about this dance is that the interpretation of the music is left to the couple.
