How did you get into dancing?
I was into solo dances like hip-hop and other stuff. My best friend, who was a complete bachata and kizomba dancer, got me into kizomba. After my first party, I couldn’t stop thinking about the dance. I watched videos at the time but it did not attract me at all. My first class was a semba class – let’s just say I was shocked as I never imagine having so much fun dancing with a partner.
What projects are you currently working on?
Today, I focus on telling stories with my videos which is something I love. I guess it is more interesting to tell something through our demos.
My second project is trying to grow the kizomba/semba community around Marseille in France, where I live.
What’s been the most memorable moment of your journey as a dancer so far?
My most memorable moment as a dancer was discovering kizomba na rua in Luanda. I miss it just by thinking of it.
What advices would you give to up-and-coming dancers looking at you for inspiration?
Never stop learning, even if you think you don’t have more to learn. This is precisely the moment that tells you need some more information. And leave your ego behind, it will slow you down.
What can we expect from you for the rest of 2018?
More videos and more parties
