Nayoum Kizafro from Bordeux, France!
Have you heard of Afrobeats? It is an umbrella term to describe popular music from West Africa and the diaspora. It initially developed in Nigeria, Ghana and the UK. It is now extremely popular in the street dance circles. It is part of Kizomba parties. Sometimes even brazilian zouk dancers use it, it is also all over the radio, cafes and shopping malls 🙂 There is a modern afro dance that goes with it. El sol is up to date with the new trends and we will teach you how to dance it.
In kizomba this dance is a base just like Afrocuban dances for salseros and bachata dominicana for bachateros. Afro class is also a great developing technique for all style dancers, for their grounding and body control.
