Where It All Began

The Bachata, Kizomba and Salsa dance genres have taken over Joburg with all their groovy moves. The Kizomba dance and music originates in Angola. Both Angola and Gabon have contributed greatly to the African dance party movement. Although very popular in Angola, the Bachata and Salsa dance styles come from the Latin family. These two dance styles are similar to African dancing.
