Kizomba MaNi about us

Kizomba MaNi about us

“Kizomba MaNi” started in the living room together with friends

The name” Kizomba Mani” is made by merging our dance passion with our names, and Kizomba is the Angolan Tango which we really fall in love with in its purest form. We keep continuing to challenge and develop using all the basic elements.
…..”Mania” literally means: a love for something, rage. We already knew from the Angolan way of dancing that Kizomba is our biggest passion.

In Our “Kizomba“ dance classes we try to create a homely and relaxed atmosphere where we instruct , but we also leave room for silliness and fun on the dance floor.
We believe in our point of view and guaranty to monitor the group learning level and individual attention
.
We from Kizomba MaNi see ourselves as instructors, and help people how to make the dance their own.

As ‘Kizomba MaNi’ we show our unique way of the dance. It’s important to keep on developing our teaching techniques so it becomes easier to dance KIZOMBA with an Angolan flavour!

join us, Let’s DANCE! together…

He was always dancing at Soul & R&B theme nights, but noticed that something was missing and wanted more experience in the dance scene.

Through his work selling music at a music store, at that time the biggest music store in Europe he learned a lot about music of the world, and in particular Latin American and African music…

That was when he decided to take dance lessons.
Salsa and Bachata ware the first lessons because he had to wait for a new start of the dance season for Brazilian dances.

After learning to dance Samba Gafeira and Pagode, Forro and Lamba Zouk he noticed that there was something special about the music of Lamba Zouk.

It created a different flow in his mind, but could’t find steps for it
Then Kizomba came into his life and captured his heart for sure…
And everything began to make sense.

Bachata is a dance that originates from Nidia’s homeland Dominican Republic. At very young age she did perform Bachata following her father’s steps who loves the Bachata.

Most of her dance experiences came naturally and easy to her. When she grew up she went to a dance school and learned various dance styles like Bachata, Samba, Forró, Samba Pagode, Samba de Gafieira, Zouk and Lambazouk.

Then Kizomba came into her life and captured her heart for sure.

Since a few years she totally became focused on Kizomba together with one of her regular dancing partners in crime, where they were asked by friends to teach them how to dance this beautiful sensual dance. They are also prompted by a larger audience to give lessons…
