Kizomba Leeds is set to bring its Angolan magic to the Waterfront Festival! Kizomba is a sensual, exotic style of dance that originates from Angola and has recently become popular all over the world thanks to it's fun and energetic style. This year, we are welcoming the 'Kizomba Leeds' troupe to the festival. The group includes Kizomba enthusiasts from Leeds, Sheffield and many other surrounding Yorkshire areas, who are keen to get everyone involved in the growing movement that is Kizomba.
On day two of the festival on Sunday 26th June, dancers from Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, York and more will descend on Granary Wharf for the afternoon, promising 'flash mob' performances and FREE workshops all afternoon long! The workshops will teach the basic steps of the dance to members of the public. All ages can get involved, it's a fun way to spend your afternoon! We think Granary Wharf is the perfect venue to showcase such an amazing event, a large piazza close to the water on a sunny Sunday afternoon! Kizomba Leeds will weave their way through flash mobs and workshops all afternoon long and it all kicks off at 12 noon with their first flash mob!
You can find lots of videos of flash mobs, dance style and lessons on YouTube, just pop Kizomba in the search and press go!
