JUST KIZ IT

TAKE YOUR KIZOMBA TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Our
Perspective

Castle of Dance is the dance school that combines social and urban dance, for every student to get their dance skills in a fun and efficient way, without any judgments, stereotypes, or limitations. We welcome anyone, regardless of their physical ability or mental capacity. 

 

We work innovatively and creatively to teach each dance style with games, exercises, and technical aspects to provide the best dance experience. At our institute, we don’t just teach dance steps, we teach the story behind each dance and its associated steps. We aim to help you comprehend the meaning of each step so that you can feel and express your dance uniquely.

“We strongly believe that the progress you achieve in physical, mental, and self-confidence growth while in the dance studio extends beyond its boundaries. Dancing serves as a form of therapy, helping in better self-understanding and positively impacting your daily life.”

— Chamalo, Founder Castle of Dance

Level Guide

In dancing, whether it’s mastering the fundamental steps or delving into the most intricate concepts, the difficulty level varies. At Castle of Dance, we structure our curriculum across five distinct levels. This approach enables you to learn how to freestyle effectively, develop your unique dance style, and express yourself freely with whomever you choose, whenever you desire.

 

It’s important to note that each lesson is distinct, and even if we revisit the same topic, it’s never repeated to the letter.

BEGINNER

Start early, feel less pressure, and improve faster. We'll make learning easy, helping movements become muscle memory. Have fun dancing solo or with partners, building a supportive community. Program focuses on 5 Kizomba techniques for proper posture and expression.

IMPROVERS

Master basics, explore complex combinations. Leaders learn new moves, followers add styling. Fine-tune basics, work on balance, timing, and control. Learn cross steps, directional changes, and advanced moves.

Dance well with relaxed technique, focusing more on musicality. Enhance footwork, shadows, and speed. Develop through exercises and complex steps, building on existing skills.

  • Why are level checks mandatory?
    Our level check is a unique opportunity to receive personal feedback from the instructor and to dance at the right level. We believe that you get the most out of classes by dancing at your own level. During the level check you will already meet other students and get to practice on the dance floor. Make your dance steps at Castle of Dance and start with level control. We advise you to sign up for the level check. Level improvers and higher New Castle of Dance students (with kizomba experience) who want to start at advanced level must first do a level check. If you buy a ticket without a level check, the ticket will be cancelled. Current students are advised to move to a higher level during their classes.
