START AT THE BEGINNING...

Whether you’ve never danced a day in your life, or you’re a dancing superstar, you’ve got to start at the beginning to learn the basics of a new dance. We’ve got systems in place to get you dancing quickly, and to help you learn at a pace that is comfortable for you. Kizomba is an ideal dance for someone who is new to dance, but it is also varied and complex enough to satisfy even the most experience and avid dancer.

IT'S NOT JUST WHAT YOU LEARN, BUT HOW YOU LEARN...

It helps to have a full curriculum at your disposal to make you a well-rounded dancer. Our Got Kizomba U is designed to give you an orderly route to dancing greatness, organized in quarters, and consisting of various weekly classes. Each class serves a different purpose and challenges you in different ways. Manageable steps will motivate you to continue, and varying subjects will keep you from being bored.

MORE THAN JUST SOCIAL DANCING, IT'S FAMILY

Kizomba is, above it all, a SOCIAL DANCE. It’s a great way to meet like-minded people who come from many different backgrounds, interests, and age groups. More than just being a place to learn to dance, we’ve built a community that is friendly and supportive. Read the many testimonials scattered around the site, and you’ll get a sense of family. It’s a great place to be nurtured to bring out the best in you.

Everyone who knows us, knows we demand excellence from our students. If you don’t like detail-oriented instruction, you might not like our style. But, if you know that HARD WORK and FUN can peacefully co-exist, you’ll love us. 🙂

Briefly, I looked around for a dance with "Roots" - a dance rooted in the Diaspora experience; An experience that blends originality, dexterity, togetherness, soulfulness, sensuous rhythms; There is neither "Quartier Latin", nor "Santos" in San Francisco; But across the Bay Bridge on Lake Merritt, gotkizomba keeps me in the groove; With that which took decades to intertwine and re-intertwine - Kizomba; The passion and connection of peoples; Through a unique music, a unique dance; Thanks gotkizomba!

I've been learning Kizomba with Emile and Veronika for the past 5 months now and it's been awesome. I wasn't sure about it before I started but after the first lesson I was totally hooked. It's a great activity to meet some really nice people and learn some cool dance moves.

My name is Alvin & I've been taking Kizomba from Emile & Veronika for about 8 months. I've never danced before & the classes they offer are structured so that it can be assessed as to my progression. The group as a whole are very friendly & people are kind to one another, that is why I stayed. If you're curious about Kizomba & want to learn, give them a shot.

Emile and Veronika are fantastic kizomba teachers. They are very passionate about the dance and have built a wonderful community of kizomba dancers in the bay area. I always enjoy their classes and workshops - they are very methodical, patient,and fun in their approach to teaching the dance. They are constantly striving to keep their material fresh and exciting.

Thank you to everyone, especially Emile and Veronika, who made this weekendr as awesome as it was. As with all their events, organization and instruction were top notch. Great venues, music, food, vibe, and dances. What really stood out for me were the classes. Loved the variety of styles and transitions between them, how the teachers adjusted their instruction and answered questions, and how they presented just enough material to help us improve, practice, and absorb without overloading. Learned a ton and had a ton of fun. Huge thank you and can't wait until the next one.

I was looking for kizomba classes in the bay area during my exchange semester in Berkeley, and I'm very happy I found Emile and Veronika. I've attended their Monday and Thursday classes regularly for 3 months now, and I'll definitely continue until I have to go back to Germany. I love that they pay attention to the small things, and that you do all the moves correctly. It's the details that make great dancers and that make kizomba a lot of fun. All the routines I've learned I can use at social dancing, and the variety of different styles they teach allows you to really adapt your dancing to the music, and not just dancing the same way to every song. I am also very happy to know all the people in the kizomba community. It makes me feel welcome and at home.
