Kizomba Body Movement
You’ve seen the videos. You crave that movement that has been described as “creamy,” “gooey,” and “sensual.” We’ll explore a few of the isolations and controlled transitions that are the hallmark of kizomba. We’ll start out working separately, gradually incorporating the movement into our normal kizomba steps. Then we’ll come together with our partners to discover how we can layer styling in without interfering without partners, as well as how to lead and follow styling suggestions.
