Monday 19 th September
⚪️URBAN KIZ NIGHT ⚪️
✅Our next weekly dance experience will be Urban Kiz every Monday from 19 th September and thereafter with International Urban Kiz teacher on rotation...
We'll have Arnaud, Kevin, Tan Guy in the house teaching URBAN KIZ / FRENCH STYLE each week, assisted by Sonny.
We believe the different dances and teachers allow you to explore your musicality and your own dance styling. Those that have attended our events have experienced and learnt some kuduro, afro house, funana, kizomba and urban kiz so far. Our next event will bring a different teacher with his own personal style for you to experience.
Arnaud took his first Kizomba steps with Dennis Bedjino a well known teacher in Paris for his teaching expertise & method.
Few years later he started his own group classes as Kizomba / Semba Angolan style.
Then he discovered Urban Kiz by Moun and Enah, inspired by the creativity and beauty of this dance
From then onwards he has developed his own style combining musicality, technical, and share passion internationally �
Tanguy is originally from Haiti, born in Guadeloupe and grew up in Paris. Music and dancing have always played an important role during his childhood. He is always dancing everywhere and all the time, home, street, day and night parties, shows... The music that really influenced him as a dancer are Kompa, Zouk, Hip Hop, N'Dombolo... He started dancing Kizomba 3 years ago. Always been in love with this beautiful music that always make him smile while listening or dancing. Shortly after starting Kizomba he became a big fan of the so called French Style. The capacity for the dancers to express themselves and create new styles, blocks and contretempo influenced him. Since then he has travelled a lot to Paris to practice and develop his style, his strong point is French Tarraxa. He is making his debute as a teacher because he wants to communicate his passion and he is really keen to help the London Urban Kiz scene growing and to become a reference by developing its own new style.
He was born in Paris originally from Spain & Martinique, started to dance Kizomba 3 years ago in the beautiful suburb 94 (Champigny) in Paris.
He was really inspired by all different style of Kizomba in Paris, having growing up with Zouk from French Carribean and the pedagogy he learnt from his previous teachers. After learning for a while, he decide to take a giant step and starting attending,classes, festivals, done intensive trainings, and finally found his own style and discover Urban Kiz.
He started teaching kizomba in various locations (Paris, Province & it Paris suburbs), & moved on to Urban kiz where he felt he had more connection with the dance.
For him the best thing in the world is to share your passion & knowledge onto others to the best of your ability.
