Kizomba Fever Night

Kizomba Fever Night

Have you ever wondered how African tango looks like? Have you marvelled how dancing the sexiest dance in the world feels like? Have you ever heard how African rhythms can be mixed with modern sounds like RnB, hip hop or electronic music? Come to Senor Taco at 7.30pm to try out this beautiful dance and share some lovely moments with nice people in a familiar environment! 7.30pm – 8.30pm: Kizomba Open Class by Massimo & Alice – 10 SGD 8.30pm – 9.30pm: Kizomba Social/Practica music by DJ AL. 9.30pm onward: live band will play Salsa, Chacha, Bachata, etc. About the dance: Kizomba is a dance and music style created in Angola in the early 80’s. It is a genre of music with a romantic flow mixed with African rhythm: danced in a slow and sensual way in couples. Kizomba is all about connecting and sharing nice moments with a partner while moving as one with the music flow. About the instructor: Massimo, born in Italy, discovered Kizomba in 2012 when he was living in Switzerland. Since then he has pursued his love for this dance by learning from many internationally renowned Kizomba instructors including Dilson Rosario, Petchu and Vanessa, Isabelle and Felicien, to name a few. His style is smooth and modern, combining the fundamentals from the “traditional” Angolan Kizomba with the “modern” Urban Kiz. In August 2015, Massimo moved to Singapore and continued to share his passion for this dance here. He has since contributed to grow the local Kizomba scene by sharing his knowledge and experience through teaching and on the dance floor. Assisted by: Alice Lee...

Organiser Montage Events http://www.montage.com.sg/ Date October 31 – November 1 RSVP and Details:- https://www.facebook.com/events/1631523533784792/ S & A StandardLatin Block 261, #03-29 Waterloo Street, Singapore 180261 About Instructor Garry Portugal is known all around as El Pachanguero, and is considered one of New York & New Jersey’s top dancers and choreographers in Salsa, Mambo, Bachata, Pachanga and other dance styles. Growing up with the influence of his Cuban roots in music and dance, Garry knew that a future in dance was inevitable. He was introduced to the “On2” circuit by a friend that invited him to attend a social in NYC. He immediately fell in love and began to seek out the best instructors to help him turn his love into skill. In mid 2007, however, Garry was faced with a life-threatening condition that left him virtually paralyzed and fearful that his dancing days were over. It was then that he realized his passion for dance was much greater than he had known. After recovering, he began to seek training in many genres of dance outside of his traditional Latin styles including ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical, hip-hop, hustle and west coast swing. With over 12 years of dance experience, Garry has worked along side many great dance professionals such as: Eddie Torres – The Mambo King, Griselle Ponce, Freddie Rios, Mike Ramos, Albert Torres, and many others. Garry has successfully graced many stages over the years, including one of the largest in the world – Madison Square Garden.
