Pierre-Yves & Sarah
I started dancing at the age of 5 with my family. Dancing is my passion so I try to touch everything, classical, modern jazz, hip-hop, dancehall, salsa, bachata, kizomba and Urban Kiz necessarily. It was only the end of 2013 that I decided to put my all energy into Urban Kiz, to create a style that goes with my skills. A few months later, I met Sarah (my dance partner) at a party in Paris and it was she who invited me to dance (thank you Sarah). I hesitated, I was afraid of not being up to her level. But surprisingly, there was a direct connection between us because we had fun regardless of the critics, while learning both. Thus we multiplied dancing sessions with lot of fun and also targeted training on certain things that image ourselves. A few months later and with great surprise, Sarah has agreed to become my dance partner. Today, we give regular courses throughout the week in France (Paris and his region) and sometimes in Luxembourg or Nantes. In the weekends we are often abroad to give workshops. Despite all the travelling, our home base and rest is in the associations "ChangeMyDAnce" and "ABL mitry mory". In these associations, we find harmony in our lives because we are in a dancing community. Finally, for Sarah and I, dance is the place to express ourselves, sharing, daring and listen to others. We hope to see you to our classes and share this passion together.
Aimé & Trecy (Luxembourg)
Aimé left Paris 5 years ago to come to live in Luxembourg. In Luxembourg, where the quarter of the population is Portuguese-speaking, his love of this culture has increased. However, it is in Paris where he learned kizomba. The fact that he travels a lot, makes that his style and his conception of kizomba is very broad. Now, he is one of the best teachers of Kizomba in Luxembourg. Trecy loved the African culture and African dance since she was a child. When she lived in Portugal she heard kizomba music for the first time and fell in love. In Luxembourg she learned how to dance kizomba and after many hesitations, she started with Aimé. She was one of his best students. So it was obviously hat they started to teach together since the beginning of 2015. Now her addiction is teaching.
