Sunday 5 June, 1-6pm
Last year’s ‘African Tango picnics’ at the Garden were a big hit, so Iris de Brito and Sika Tro and their team from Studio Afro Latino Dance School are back leading more ‘Kizomba’ sessions, on four Sundays this summer.
Kizomba is a partner dance native of the African country of Angola – the word means party in the Kimbundu dialect of that country. It was first know as ‘Passada’, meaning ‘stepping’, a reference to the movement flow and for having a sensuous rhythm.
The guided practice dance sessions each last for about 20 minutes and will run throughout the afternoon from 3pm onwards.
African Tango picnics are organised by the Kindest Group and funded by the Learning Trust. You can register a place in advance at http://www.thekindest.org/africantangopicnics or just turn up on Sunday.
African Tango picnics will also take place on the following dates:
Sunday 10 July, 1-6pm
Sunday 14 August, 1-6pm
Sunday 4 September, 1-6pm
