Kizomba Classes London
Slow, sensual, and rhythmic, Kizomba is a close dance with influences from Semba, Tarraxinha, and Tango.
Since the 50’s, Angolan people used to dance Semba, the precursor to modern Kizomba.
In the 90’s when the actual Kizomba music got more and more popular, Kizomba dance also started receiving more and more credit and began to take the form it has today. Angolan Semba dancers started to adapt their Semba steps according to the tempo and flavour of the Kizomba beats. Technically speaking, Semba danced in a slow way to Kizomba music is the basis of the Kizomba dance we know today.
Milonga and Tango were also much appreciated in Angola as a result of globalization. Some people even describe Kizomba as “African Tango”. Tango's emphasis on form, beauty, control, and passion can be seen in Kizomba. 
Tarraxinha is the sexy, percussive cousin of Kizomba.
Modern Kizomba has blended these three styles together to form a beautiful, sensual, rhythmic, and musical dance that steps to the beat of one's heart. It is a dance of subtlety, closeness, and warmth.
