A simple but sensuous dance originating from the Dominican Republic, the colorful roots of Bachata are reflected both in its romantic motions and its accompanying music. Today, this suave, passionate form of dance enjoys popularity all over the world, having gained popularity across the western world. Bachata is relatively easy for newcomers, but also allows dance masters plenty of freedom to flaunt their skills.
Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance and music originating in Angola. It is a melting pot of influences, taking its origins from traditional semba with Angolan merengue and Kilapanda (traditional Angolan music). As a result, Kizomba music emerged as a more modern music genre with a sensual touch mixed with a pulsating African rhythm, it is characterised by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm, sung generally in Portuguese but also more recently in French.
Kizomba is popular for having a slow, insistent, sensuous rhythm. It is danced accompanied by a partner, very smoothly, slowly and sensuously, and with neither tightness nor rigidity. There are frequent simultaneous hip rotations coordinated between dance partners, particularly in the quieter refrains of the music.
Kizomba has been in Australia since around 2008 but only from 2012 has it started to sky-rocket in popularity, starting in Sydney and Melbourne and now in Perth!

Introduce a friend to ANY Danza Loca classes (ZUMBA, Salsa, Bachata or WHATEVER!), and we’ll give you BOTH 50% off their first class! This offer is to benefit current students who bring “new” students to our classes. The new student will need to register as your guest (at class reception) on their first session. Bring more than one guest, and we’ll give you a class discount voucher (50% of course!) for each one, that you can use at a later date. The system will work much easier if the “host” accompanies their guest at their registration. Yes, once your friend has joined, they will also be able to benefit from this offer and bring their own guests to Danza Loca classes.
We know dancing with the Danza Loca Crew has made a difference in your life. Wouldn’t you want your friends to enjoy the same awesome benefits you’ve been receiving since you joined? Of course you would… and enjoy a half-price class at the same time 🙂
