Kizomba is one of those dance styles where you can be passably good just by learning the basics, which makes it a fun and engaging dance for beginners. This might partly be why it has been gaining such a huge following in recent years (as well as all of the other great things about it). But a lot of people are eager to move on from the basics and learn as many “fancy” and impressive kizomba moves as possible. But is that a good idea? Let’s take a look at an example video of some impressive core kizomba moves combined with some fun extras.

The women in this video are dancing kizomba lady style and the choreography is clearly tight and well-thought-out. Notice, however, that the extra moves that are added on top of the core kizomba moves aren’t at the forefront of the video. What makes this choreography, and the dancing, so impressive is how perfectly they nail kizomba dancing from start to finish. The “fancy” extras are the cherry on top of an already impressive display.

So what can you take from this? The lessons are applicable to both lady style kizomba and kizomba danced with a partner. You shouldn’t just learn the basics first, you should master them. Yes, this is going to take a little while because kizomba is one of those skills that is easy to learn and hard to master, but the payoff will be worth it.

Anyone who sees you dance or who dances with you once you have become highly skilled at kizomba basic moves will be impressed. Remember that kizomba is different from many dances in that the key is engaging with the music while you dance and not the array of moves you are able to replicate. And you can only truly get in tune with your kizomba musicality if you are able to nail those basic moves.
