Kizomba Ladies’ Styling (Men Invited)
Styling in kizomba is integral to our dance, not something we do separately somewhere in the middle. It is movement that shows our interpretation of what we hear and feel in the music. Learning styling also helps us recognize or execute certain leads – leading movement with your whole body is both sensual and comfortable. For each movement we explore, ideas will be given about in which steps we can use them, as well as how leads might invite us to use them. We’ll also discuss how to extend our range of movement safely and how to be expressive without being obstructive. Bring out that ginga!

Saida, Sortie, Exit
You’ve heard it called different things, but this is definitely the trademark of kizomba. We’ll navigate the difference between outside partner steps and exiting in kizomba. By the end of class you’ll have mastered the men’s and ladies’ saida, with some takeaways for variations in footwork and styling as well.

Choose Your Own Adventure
Rachel will demonstrate three combinations, then allow the class to choose the one that appeals to them most. Learn quickly enough, and another may be added before the end of the hour!

Social practice with mostly kizomba music as well as some fusion tracks from a few different styles.

The first class is open to anyone, regardless of previous dance experience. The other two classes is recommended for those already learning kizomba or with considerable experience in another close-partnered dance.
