Wellington's Best Kizomba Social Every Monday Night

Kizomba is not complete without the actual party. Kizomba is an Angolan Word which means "party" in the Kimbundu Language. Kimbundu is the most widely spoken language in Angola within the ethnic group called Bantu. After learning some moves and techniques from our classes, Kizomba social night is the best time to practice as well as dance your night away. No matter what your level is, you're always welcome to join the party. We would like everyone to be able to travel around the world and being able to lead or follow anyone from anywhere, therefore a lot of practice will make your dance skills a numero uno ;-) With great selection of music and relaxed atmosphere, you will get carried away by
