Great news for all kizomba lovers!

In December we have an excellent opportunity to invite such a perspective instructor to Riga.

Few words about him..
Mau started to dance traditional and modern African dances since his childhood in CÔte d’Ivoire in West Africa. After dancing Rock’n’Roll, Salsa, Bachata and other dances, he came across Kizomba and Semba in 2011. He learned from well-known teachers and took some special teaching courses with Mestre Petchu and Vanessa Pura Ginga.

He teaches traditional African dances. He started to teach Kizomba and Semba privately and in events in Sweden and Poland since 2013. He now runs his own school and parties in Stockholm. He is a very pedagogical, technical and fun instructor with a great personality.

He is founder of AfroDance Rhythm and the lead-organizer of the KiSS Festival Sweden –Kizomba and Semba in Stockholm.
