Urban Kiz is a couple dance style developed from kizomba. It was born in Paris, France, in the 2010s. As a music style, Urban Kiz has been influenced by hip hop, ghetto zouk and R&B.

During this course, you can dance with your own dance partner or you can both participate in continuous rotations. However, if you want to dance only with your own pair, that is also possible. Just let the instructor know about this in the beginning of the course.

Tuomas Sirviö

Tuomas started dancing salsa and bachata while he lived in Paris, France. He returned to Finland in 2015, and after his return he found kizomba, semba and urban kiz, the latter of which stole his heart. Having participated in several dance festivals abroad, being taught by top teachers, he decided to complete the first part of Curtis Seldon and Carola Tauler’s Urbankiz teacher training in 2018. Since then, he has shared what he has learned and developed his teaching methods mainly in Turku.

“I hope my classes leave a positive vibe, provide good basics for urbankiz, encourage to interpret music and realize oneself on the dance floor without boundaries.
