Urban Kiz in Havanamoderna

(teacher: Hansel Rivero)

Urban Kiz is a couple-dance that originated in France somewhere between 2000 and 2014. Urban Kiz is short for Urban Kizomba, but in speech one hardly ever refers to Urban Kizomba. Around 2015 the dance still went under various different names, such as: French Style, New Style, Neo-Kizomba, because no consensus was reached on a final name.

The dance style evolved from Kizomba (which originates from Africa/Angola and means party in Kimbundu language), when Kizomba music was influenced by urban music styles such as R&B, Rap, Dance and Hip Hop. As the music changed, the dancers made new interpretations on how to move on this music.

The main difference between Urban Kiz and Kizomba is that the dancers generally have a larger distance between them and often don’t have the chest-to-chest connection as is common with Kizomba. The figures made often also require movement along straight lines and pivots and pirouettes of the lady are also more common in Urban Kiz than in Kizomba.
