D/FW Kizomba Universe

Promoting Unity in Our Community

May Newsletter No. 1

May 2 - May 9


D/FW Kizomba Universe is a group of dancers who have joined together to promote unity in our local Kizomba community through social dance events and learning opportunities. We shy away from focusing in on one kizomba sub category and instead strive to be the most well-rounded dancers that we can be by learning from a variety of instructors. We love to dance Semba, Traditional Kizomba, Urban Kiz, and other styles of Kizomba that are born through the evolution of the dance. Our community is comprised of dancers with varying experience levels from Instructors to novice dancers. The one thing we have in common is our love for the dance...and that allusive Kizomba connection

A New Month Brings Lots of Announcements!

D/FW Kizomba Universe is all about supporting one and other. Spreading our love of Kizomba can be a very exhausting effort. So, we lean on each other when we need to, and help each other out when we can.

Teaching weekly classes can be a lot for one person to handle, and for a long time our beloved Alex was keeping our Thursday class up and running on his own. But, as our family grew Rhashika came along, and Alex had a co-teacher to help with classes. As many of you know Alex recently announced that he is going to take a little break from teaching. He is well deserving of this much needed down time. But have no fear, he will still be a very active member of our dance community. He will be taking part in the apprenticeship program, coming out to socials, and attending classes when he can. We are glad that Alex will be able to get some much needed R&R, and we are grateful that Rhashika will be carrying the torch and continuing Thursday night classes at Alpha Midway.

Which leads me to our next announcement...

Announcing the partnership of Rhashika and Juleon! A newer face to our D/FW Kiz U family, but not new to kizomba, some of you may know Juleon from dancing Salsa. I met him quite a while ago at a Tabanka event in Houston, and let me tell you this guy is a blast to dance with! Rhashika and Juleon will be partnering together, and also teaching the Thursday night classes together. We want to extend a warm welcome to Juleon. We are so happy that you are now a member of our D/FW Kiz U family.
