About KSC Courses & the Nordic/Baltic Kizomba Semba Course

KSC Courses are normally taught in Lisbon but now you don’t need to travel that far to learn from these masters! This Nordic/Baltic Kizomba Semba Teachers Foundation Course gives a wonderful opportunity for current regional teachers, future teachers and Kizomba fanatics to develop themselves further by understanding the roots of Kizomba & Semba. This a wonderful chance to learn all this in Helsinki, Finland, prior to the AfroLatin Flow Festival from Mestre Petchú and Vanessa. Mestre Petchú is considered the founding father of the Kizomba scene in Europe being first Angolan to start teaching Kizomba outside of Angola, in Lisbon, Portugal.
