A partner dance with exquisit connection where two people move as one.

For those who try kizomba, the captivating and alluring nature of its partner connection becomes quite evident almost from the start. It is, after all, a smooth dance where the synchronicity of movement and feel between the two dancers is of great importance. It becomes therefore mesmerizing and soothing for those who dance it.

Our Toronto Kizomba classes focus a great deal of attention in the myriad of small details that make all the difference. Quality is what our students become known for, and this philosophy is present from the start.
