DARWIN KIZOMBA FEVER 

 

ABOUT US

Darwin Kizomba Fever was established in 2015 with the dream to spread and grow awareness of this beautiful dance called Kizomba. 

 

Since its introduction Darwin Kizomba Fever has been pivotal in helping promote Kizomba both in Darwin and also overseas in Timor Leste. The group delivered the first regular Kizomba classes in Darwin in 2014 and continues to push awareness of many different dance genres by running events, workshops and parties .

 

To add to the hard work and dedication the group has also been successful in helping establish a regular night for the Latin Dance Community

Director Zey Branco

Having grown up from humble beginings Zey was exposed to the social aspect and culture of Kizomba from an early age. Born in Mozambique (Africa) and traveling between Angola as a child really set the passion for what was later to become what he loves today.

 

As a child Zey was exposed to music and dance, he danced socially at family parties as a tradition growing up. He also performed traditional cultural dances, was involved in theatre and arts and also trained and performed in the art of Capoeira from the age of 17.

In his words; in 1998 I attended a social gathering with family members when I watched my cousins from Mozambique dance, their moves were fluid and flawless gliding on the dance floor and connecting to the music. From that day I fell in love with this dance called Kizomba. 

Since 2014 Zey has attended many bootcamps, festivals and teachers seminars both in Australia and overseas to learn as much as he can. He has also taught International workshops in Singapore, India, Malaysia and East Timor and continues to travel teach and learn within Australia and around the world. Having pioneered the Kizomba scene in Darwin, Zey also organises events and workshops to keep the love for this beautiful dance and its culture growing. 

I hope you can join us on this journey..
