New Kizomba Events Calendar

Kizomba Dancers

Do you dance Kizomba? Kizomba is a sensual dance from Angola that is gaining in popularity in the Bay Area and around the world. Although not technically a Latin dance, kizomba music is often played at events that play salsa and bachata, and there are a number of festivals in the Bay Area just for kizomba!

Due to the growing popularity of this dance, we have created a new Kizomba Events Calendar where you can find a list of all kizomba lessons and events in the Bay Area! Although it’s not salsa, it’s a great dance to add to your dance repertoire. As always, let us know if we missed any events!
