Event Description

“Heat up your winter nights with the African & Caribbean house dance"
"Over 4 days, from March 19 to March 22,
Kizomba, Semba and Caribbean zouk will reveal their secrets to you."

What is Kizomba?
Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance and music created in Angola. Derived directly from Zouk music, sung generally in Portuguese, it is a genre of music with a romantic flow mixed with African rhythm. The kizomba dancing style is also very sensual.

Africadancar's champion in France and finalist in Lisbon, dance instructor Djks Vasco is finally coming to Victoria for our Festival! Check him out for the public workshops he's given in South America and numerous European countries, and experience the sensuality, sweetness, precision and efficiency of Kizomba/Semba dance. Then try out your moves at the social dance party!
Vasco will be teaching with Joëlle. Joëlle is aspiring to be part of the relive team of Kizomba & Salsa teachers in Quebec City.

Early registration encouraged. Private lessons available.
