One of the traits that would define Lúcia’s teaching style is her deep care about the roots of the dance and the culture behind it.

She started dancing Kizomba over a decade ago as part of the PALOP community in Portugal, but it was only in 2012 that she started teaching internationally and collaborating with some of the best artists in the Kizomba world.

Lucia has mentored a lot of instructors the past years and since 2016 she has been offering a new form of guidance through her Kizomba teachers training.

Lucia is one of the very few ladies in the Kizomba scene that teaches internationally on her own and is versatile on both leading and following, as a result Lucia has been travelling and sharing Kizomba in different continents and now with us at Ark Festival.
