Sherri Juarez will be guest instructing this session. Sherri has traveled the world in search of the best training in Kizomba. We welcome her to Booth’s to share her passion and knowledge! Kizomba is one of the most popular genres of dance originating in Angola. It is a derivative of traditional Angolan semba. On this basis, kizomba music emerged from French-Caribbean zouk after 1986 when the band Kassav visited Africa, as a more modern music genre with a sensual touch mixed with African rhythm. Kizomba music is derived primarily from zouk. Unlike semba, kizomba music is characterized by a slower and usually very romantic rhythm.
