African & Brazilian Inspired Nights in the Bull City

The Bull City is known for its diversity and cultural experiences. Last night we had a taste of African& Brazilian Nightlife learning to dance the sultry Angolan Kizomba. The Palace International hosted a Afro-Zouk  Night that gave us a whirlwind of dance combined with an after party of rhythms. It’s here where we learned to let go of our traditional dance moves and embrace Kizomba.  Embodied Dance was one of the dance studios represented so we had a chance to speak with Rachel Meth who gave us insight on this intriguing dance style. “These are fairly new dances to our country so we have joined together a community to teach this style of dance for a year now”.  For more information go to or contact them at The classes are offered this Fall in beginning in October to November in a two part level series. Instructor Kimberly Nicole holds classes at Triangle Dance Studio in Durham. Go to for more info on the class times and registration. I even got Conrad on the floor last night even though we were clueless it turned out to be a fun time. The heartbeat of this style dance is the closeness connection the partners connected with. Not only were they physically close but it was a leading submission to reach a utopia of the Kizomba. Tonight was definitely a fun time and we look forward to seeing more at The Vault.
