Every Monday 8-9pm Semba is partner dance from Angola. It is a fun and energetic "father" of Kizomba. Curious to know a bit of history of Semba? Check this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=3i6oGw2oiWI This class is open for all levels of dancers. Foundational steps, posture, musicality and fun combinations will be the topic of this class. Fun and sore muscles are guaranteed! You do not need to bring a partner (but if you have one, great!) as we will rotate in class to make sure everyone gets a chance to practice! Instructor biography: Veronika Robinson, originally from Belarus, discovered the world of dancing in 2011 when she decided to take her first salsa class in Charlotte, NC. Her love of dancing and exploring different cultures brought her to discover Kizomba in summer of 2014. After her first Kizomba workshop with Kizomba RDU, she went on to receive more training attending different Kizomba festivals around the US, including Washington DC, Miami, Las Vegas, Houston, etc. Her dance style has been influenced by different Kizomba instructors including training with Oscar BA, David Campos and Guida Rei, Eddy Vents and Lucia Noguiera, and Brinca (TBoy and Ashby). She has completed over 40 hours of intensive kizomba instructor training with Lucia Noguera (Portugal).Since March of 2015, Veronika has been co-teaching weekly classes locally in Charlotte, as well doing workshops at local Charlotte and Atlanta kizomba dance festivals in "Kizomba Charlotte", one of the first kizomba schools in the area. July of 2017, Veronika went on to establish “Kizomba Alegria Dance Company” where she teaches weekly classes and does bi-weekly dance social events to promote kizomba dance culture in Charlotte and surrounding areas.Veronika is also the co-founder and organizer of “Kizomba Open Air” initiative – free outdoor kizomba dance events in Charlotte. She got the idea after she visited Minsk, Belarus and saw local kizomba community of dancers there dancing outside in local parks and plazas.Currently, Veronika and “Kizomba Alegria Dance Company” are committed to promoting Angolan style of kizomba dancing in hopes to preserve and educate more people about the beautiful culture and African roots of Kizomba/Semba dancing.
