Meet the Family

BailaAfrika Afro Latino Dance Family was established in March 2012 and is more than a single dance teacher, a DJ or a dance school...it is a growing Afro Latino Dance Family with global members. BailaAfrika hosts local and international specialists in African and Afro Latin dances to grow and upskill the community, whilst promoting local and international cultural exchange. The teaching style focuses on the appreciation of dance origins, histories and cultures and the power of connection to dance across boundaries.

BailaAfrika's founding members spent years learning Cuban Style Salsa and Kizomba from some of the most respected teachers whilst they lived in London and it's dynamic, passionate and skilled teaching team proudly identify as lifelong students.

Although considered the pioneers of the Kizomba scene in South Africa, having introduced lessons, socials and parties in 2012 outside of PALOP private functions, it is equally passionate about all things Salsa from Cuba and proud of its African roots.
