Students Feedback

“All the knowledge u are gonna get is amazing ”

Magda Reyes - U.S.A

“It's the best you can do, if you really want to dive into the dance and learn more about Kizomba it's roots, the tradition etc. You do not only improve your dance, but also do a lot for your personality, confidence etc. ”

Larissa Ziegler - Switzerland

“Knowledge that is tested by experience, has a structure, and you are unlikely to get it anywhere else in such a concentration, you can improve without leaving home”

Koltsov Nikita - Russia

“It is a very complete course that will teach you about the basic of kizomba & semba, different steps and routines, ginga for men and women, styling for men and women, musicality, exercises to improve your balance, understand your body weight, move your bunda and how to enjoy each step and smile with your body as you do it :) ”

Patterson - Canadá

“I wanted to thank Paula & Ricardo a lot for the webinar about musicality. It was very informative and I learned some new study I didn’t know before, for example that the term Kizomba music existed already before the influence of Zouk.”

Fabian Dre

“Fun & useful with good teachers”

Joke & Jurjan - Netherlands

“You will be drowned in information in all level. All this information represents everything you need to evolve your own kizomba world. ”

Pika Tchong - France

“You guys gave me so much since I've met you, energy, time, information and your heart. Thank you for everything you do and give to me and the community! Just did the lesson and it was awesome! 😁 I liked how everything was explained in the detail, how we started slowly then speed things up, the structure, that at the beginning of the class we practiced the most difficult part. The choreography looks great! Thank you! 🙏”

Gabor Laszlo - Hungary

“High professionalism in teaching, great ability to communicate the baggage of experience of over 20 years in the execution and teaching of "DANCE" (I mean in a general sense not only in Kizomba) that are of extreme help in setting up my courses. VERY GOOD, BEAUTIFUL and VERY NICE masters !!!”

Rita Panusa - Italy

“School gives new useful knowledge, it is applicable in dance life and opens up my new opportunities. Feedback from teachers is especially valuable to me.”

Tatiana Gaponova - Russia
