Go to workshops, go to festivals (the only way you can feel how kizomba really should look like), watch videos, film everything – then practice what you filmed at home. (watch videos online)

Film Yourself as much as you can – you can always delete. Imagination vs reality.
★★★ Kizomba Tip 3 ★★★
Go to parties – practice some move at home, then do it in the social – try to create variations.

Listen to a lot of music everywhere you go, Count the music to understand the changes.

– D&L Beats – these DJ’s constantly keep releasing great new mixes with top songs – excellent to listen to – https://soundcloud.com/dl_beats
– Kizomba Hipster – this guy does a great job creating mixes, adding new top kizomba songs and providing titles, high quality audio for each of them – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzCB7stlfJjUKWeNbuUWoYw
Take it a step further with creating loops in dj software and repeat until you know it all.
I use Serato DJ to create loops (it’s free) – https://serato.com/dj/downloads
★★★ Kizomba Tip 5 ★★★
Always stay student – I remember when I asked one girl if she knows saida – she responded do I know saida myself ( after 8 months of daily practicing). Especially for guys – know that even beginner girl can help you to improve. It’s hard sometimes, but humble is the only way to go.
You can always learn from every person, every situation. – best way to do it is when you stay humble.
