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.
Where To Dance
Every Sunday, put on your dancing shoes and enjoy the vibe of this dance party. It doesn’t matter if you have danced before or not, as no experience is required. Those wanting to move to the groove can join the dance square. There, you can find a dancing partner who will take the lead.
Baila Afrika often hosts dance parties and socials; bringing people together from all around Joburg. They also offer annual trips overseas, where you can get first-hand experience of what the Latino culture and dances are all about.
Beginners, who aren’t yet ready to Salsa abroad, can learn the art of dance at Baila Afrika’s beginner dance classes.
