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.

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.
