dance classes+workshops+socials


Kizomba is a beautiful partner dance from Portuguese-speaking West Africa taking the world by storm. To learn to dance Kizomba, join us weekly. Classes focus on Connection, Technique, Musicality, and FUN, all elements of great Social Dancing. And, every Thursday night, we have our popular Kizomba social, so you can practice what you learned in classes. Don’t forget to bring your friends. This is the ORIGINAL and the Bay Area’s longest running ( 5+ yrs) Kizomba program. We’re all friends and family here, so join us.

Feel free to contact us with any questions, and please be sure to purchase your passes before the classes start so we don’t get swamped at the door.
