KIZOMBA
Kizomba music and dance were created in Angola in early 1980s when zouk, the popular music in the Caribbean, came to Angola and mixed with semba. Kizomba means a partyin Kimbundu language. In its country of origin, it is traditionally danced for example at weddings and at other parties. Kizomba is a social dance that is characterized by a close proximity and the lower body concentrated ginga, the body movement. Similar to tango, leading and following are done with the upper body and less with hands (compared to salsa). After its arrival in Europe, kizomba has developed into new styles, such as urbankizz and kizomba fusion.

SEMBA

Semba is a fast-paced, fun couple dance. Semba has a long tradition in Angola, in its country of origin, and it has influenced other genres of music and dance, for example kizomba. The essential characteristics of semba include hooks, low liftings, the leader’s footwork and various tricks. In Dance Studio Flama, we start with the basics of semba and concentrate on the most important aspect: having fun!

CARLOS CAMBA

Carlos Camba is from Angola and he has been teaching kizomba and semba in Finland since 2014. Carlos has studied dancing with several international dance teachers and developed his skills especially in Angola. During his classes, Carlos concentrates on developing basic techniques and body movements, especially the use of the hip. It is important to him that all the knowledge learnt during the classes can be applied to actual social dances.

Carlos finds it important to have a good relationship with his students. Humor blossoms in his classes. He highlights that everyone, who is motivated to learn, is warmly welcome to his classes, regardless of age or sex.

Carlos teaches both kizomba and semba in Dance Studio Flama. He gives the classes with his dance instructor assistant, Ida Koho, who has worked as an assistant for several teachers and has been trained by several international female dance teachers in Europe and in Angola.

ANNA
Anna has been dancing different dance styles since she was a teenager and she has taught dancehall for several years before switching to kizomba and semba.

Anna has learned kizomba and semba from Angolan dance teachers in both Europe and Angola. She travels regularly to Angola to learn more about dance and culture where they have been born. It is very important to her to teach kizomba and semba in their most authentic forms while respecting the culture.
