Criola London | Kizomba & Urban Kiz – Mini Festival
After the pandemic a lot of reflection took place, and for now we have decided to change the format. Criola will now be in one room, but still mixing music and dancing styles.
Kizomba, Semba, Urban Kiz, Cabo Love, Zouk, Kompa, Ghetto Zouk, Tarraxinha, Douceur, Tarraxa, Funana, Coladeira, Afro house/ beats and more…
It will be either a one or two day event (depending on the month) and take place every third Saturday or Sunday or weekend of the month.
★We believe in togetherness, family feeling, connectedness, community, camaraderie, friendship, sharing and love, so would like to see all dancers enjoy our parties together in the same room.
★We have many talented Dj’s on our soil so prepare to be spoiled!!!
At some of these events we will also be adding a special twist, by inviting guest dancers from Paris, Netherlands and of course our own UK dancers – Let’s bring some quality dancing!!!
★Our first event will be on the 19th & 20th of March as a 2-day event with classes, social dancing and a party; aiming to bring GBKF festival vibes to you. At this edition we are bringing Taxi & Guest dancers from Paris, Netherlands and our own dancers from various locations in the UK. They will be dancing with us for 2 days.
