How did you get into dancing?
A close friend of mine introduced me to the world of Kizomba and Salsa. I was attracted not only by the dances styles, but also by the social dynamics and community feel. I was more drawn to Kizomba and soon dedicated my time and energy to learning the style as well as teaching it, learning from a range of dancers, attending teaching training courses and various festivals and performance groups.
What projects are you currently working on?
We are currently launching a few full day workshops throughout the year providing a range of popular Afro dance styles from national and international teachers. We have also just relaunched our Luna Club night, a classy dance night with elements of live entertainment as well as a fusion of Kizomba and Semba genres with more other commercial genres such as Afro, RnB and Hip Hop. Further in the pipeline I will be running some Kizomba Men’s Styling Workshops.
What’s been the most memorable moment of your journey as a dancer so far?
There’s been so many memorable moments, but for me, the thrill and feeling of live performance is hard to beat.
What advice would you give to up & coming dancers looking at you for inspiration?
The type of advice will change depending on whether you are dancing for social pleasure or whether you want to take it to more professional levels. In any case, which ever style of dance you pursue try as many classes, from as many teachers as you can. Do your homework, understand what you are learning and why you are learning it.
What can we expect from you for the rest of 2018?
Workshops, Club Nights, Weekly Classes, Festivals… If people like what we do then we will continue to do our best to bring quality, fun, memorable moments.
