I still find it hard to believe that nobody seems to have gotten very enthusiastic about Kizomba in the US yet (except for those 'cool' people up in Seattle :-). I still think it's going to be the next 'big thing' and this exerpt from a poster over on my other site, www.kizombadancer.com is indicative of what we can expect.
It's like the Salsa-powers that be just don't want to consider there might be another dance to take their customers away. It's like a killer virus that nobody wants to talk about.
Bachata and Jorge Elizando went through the same thing. Very few people in his 'local' market would give him a chance so ......he took his talents on the road. And today he's built quiet an empire and is having a helluva good time.
I'm telling ya'! Somebody could do the same thing with Kizomba in the US right now. Whoever gets into this market in the US and establishes themselves as teachers and/or performers....they're gonna do very, very well.
Kizomba in New Zealand I've been dancing Salsa for years, and just before I left the UK some friends from the Salsa scene were starting to get into Kizomba. It seemed to be replacing the Salsa and... that would be a regular of any salsa night: Salsa and Merengue, Salsa and Bachata, etc etc. So, in the interest of keeping up to date with the latest Dance obsession I'm on a bit of a mission to learn Kizomba!! Anyone have any tips/starters? Where do you get the music from?
