The dance from Angola is danced very smoothly, slowly and sensuously, and with very fluid movements. 
In addition, frequent simultaneous hip rotations coordinated between dance partners, particularly in the quieter refrains of the music. and the music is characterized by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm, sung generally in Portuguese. 
It’s a slow sexy dance. Partners dance quite close. Music is generally sang in Portuguese but these days also many influence of Semba and Zouk.


Wimmy & Bari are the founders of Danca in Wellington since 2014. One of their commitments in Kizomba is to never stop learning and to learn more in order to give back. They have spent their time in Portugal to learn from some of the best teachers Kizomba teachers. They have done Kizomba Teachers Training in Porto, where they mastered their teaching techniques, Kizomba methodology and foundations.
