Kizomba, a beautiful partner dance with Angolan roots, is spreading like wildfire across the global dance community. In March Aroha Latin Dance offered a Kizomba weekend and we are very happy to be doing it again!!
Haley Morrison is a patient, warm instructor who is building a beautiful community of Kizomba dancers in Wilmington. I am so grateful to her for agreeing to travel just a few miles down the coast to Myrtle Beach to share her expertise.
Although we will be offering 3 hours of Kizomba classes I will also offer classes in Salsa and Bachata. 15 minutes of practice time is included atter each class.
We will finish the day of classes with dancing at Hard Rock Cafe where Kizomba will be played so you can use your new dance skills!

Haley Morrison Bio:
Haley Morrison has been training in various dance techniques such as, Clogging, Jazz, and Modern since the age of four. Her passion for dance drove her to study Dance Performance at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where her focus was Modern and Ballet. Through her studies at UNCC she discovered various Latin and African dance forms such as Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha, Kizomba, Merengue and more! From traveling to study these dances she met Manuel Dos Santos and his company Kizomba Canada. After taking workshops at many different festivals with Manuel and his team and witnessing the awesome energy that they brought to every event they are apart of, she decided that this was the organization she wanted to be affiliated with. Now, Haley is proudly teaching and performing Kizomba as Dsantos Dance NC with Manuel Dos Santos and Kizomba Canada!
