Level 1, 454 Nicholson St, North Fitzroy. (Above "EL GAUCHO restaurant, TRAM stop 96 "Curtain ST".)

The studio has an amazing wooden dance floor, mirrors, bar and toilet facilities. It is located upstairs from "El Gaucho" restaurant. The tram stop is close by and parking can be located on Nicholson St or near side streets Fenwick, Church, Freeman and Curtain.

Kizomba dancing is incredibly addictive as it is just as much about feeling as it is technical. It can be as easy or as tricky as you want it to be as there are no rules other then respecting yourself, your partner and all around you. Lose yourself in the beauty of Kizomba!!


“Kizomba what now?”
In short, Kizomba means "Party" and is a genre of music and dance originating in Angola and Cape Verde in the 80s- 90s. Kizomba has heavy influences from various African and African influenced cultures, especially Caribbean Zouk of Guadeloupe before being introduced in Portugal and exploding all around Europe. Throughout the last few years, it has been steadily growing in America and Australia. It is a beautiful, elegant, sexy and sensual dance which participants are in a close embrace and connection is key.
