Later I did hip hop in Paris for a long time, where I took my first real dance lessons.
Then I took lessons in Salsa (Cuban, on1 on2), Timba, Bachata, Merengue, Chacha ….
And I taught Lady styling in Salsa for a few
Kizomba came into my life a bit like by accident.
At the time there was a lot of sbk party which was organized in Paris and I did not want to stay seated during the Kizomba so I started taking classes in 2016 or maybe a little before.
Kizomba-> semba-> urbankiz-> tarraxo.
