Steal that Style: Kizomba Leg & Foot Tricks
Two people moving as one is magical, but learning to use alternative connection points and dissociation will open up a world of possibilities in your dancing. We’ll start with simple pivots and then experiment with manipulating our steps to build into slides, lifts, and catches!
Kizomba is an African partnered dance originally from Angola that has captured interest in dance communities worldwide. The close partnered connection and groundedness of kizomba lend themselves well to crossover in blues.

Every Monday night in the Mission, from 9:00-12:00, come have fun and dance with your friends to blues music and beyond. Check out our drop-in lessons at 8:00 (No partner or experience needed). Sliding Scales: $12-$16 lesson plus dance, $6-$10 dance only.

We love variety, so we partner dance to many styles of music, exploring different styles of movement to go with it. To blues music we dance blues dances. To other music we branch out and explore AltDancing, or find inspiration from other dance forms.
