Kizomba Workshops

KIZOMBA has made it to the Sunshine Coast! Join us to learn about this style that is gaining fast popularity around Australia, as well as the world. 

A bit about Kizomba: 
Kizomba is known for having a slow, insistent, somewhat harsh yet sensuous rhythm as the result of electronic percussion. It is danced accompanied by a partner, very smoothly, slowly and sensuously, and with neither tightness nor rigidity. There are frequent simultaneous hip rotations coordinated between dance partners, particularly in the quieter refrains of the music. Several individuals with a love of the Kizomba culture have been promoting it in other countries.

A bit about Severine: 
Severine started latin dancing at Rio Rhythmics under the direction of of Tarcisio Teatini-Climaco and Kadu Pires in 2007.

Severine began her apprenticeship as class assistant to Kadu Pires for several years before being invited to be part of the K&L teaching team 2012.

Severine has trained in many styles including Zouk. Gafieira, Salsa, Merengue and Forro, however her heart and passion is focused on Kizomba and Semba.

Although her passion is more focused on Kizomba and Semba, Severine has trained in many styles including, Zouk-Lambada, Samba de Gafieira, Bolero, Merengue, Forro, Bachata. Severine has been trained by some of the best international instructors including Ricardo and Paula, Albir Rojas, Carolina Kizomba, Felicien and Isabelle, Leo & Becky Neves Batista, Renata Pencanha & Jorge Peres, Carlos da Silva, Alex de Carvalo, Dahijinio just to name a few!
