Danced predominantly in a close embrace, Kizomba requires deep sensitivity and full body presence to create and maintain partner connection.
Because the close embrace bars visual feedback, following in Kizomba is entirely sensual. In fact, followers often dance with their eyes closed to heighten tactile sensitivity.
Kizomba is a profoundly intimate and connected experience. At the deepest levels of partner connection, it can feel as nothing short of a shared meditative trance.
While often eroticized due to its sensual nature, in its origin, Kizomba is not a sexual dance. Traditionally, it can be danced with friends and family members.
