Kizomba is a type of African dance that (while somewhat similar to ballroom dancing) focuses on moving with the music instead of repeating the same steps. We see this in Mika and Marine’s dance. They’re moving across the floor, but are using a lot of footwork with the occasional lifts to accentuate the performance.

Leadership appears to switch occasionally between the two partners and in that we see their own talents flourish. Marine exerts excellent control while lifting his partner and Mika is an absolutely unforgettable force, moving with such grace that the audience is unable to look away.

Kizomba is heavily dependent on the interaction between the two partners and the attitude of the dance is dependent upon them. We see in this video with the hip sways and lifts and turns an intimate exchange between the two partners. There’s a chemistry between the two that we the audience get to enjoy as we watch them dance.
