Latinfest is proud to have teaching Kizomba at our forthcoming weekend, the legendary Iris De Brito.
Iris is also the one who started Kizomba in the UK and together with a team of teachers that she has helped train, she founded her School Studio Afro-Latino which promotes Kizomba and other Afro-Latin Rhythms like Rumba and Afro-Cuban Dance.
Trained at The London Studio Center and with the late William Louther Dance Theatre, she is a very diverse dancer / singer / choreographer. Film and other credits include:” Evita”, “Robin Williams… An Audience With”,”The Des O’Connor Show”,”TOP”,”CD-UK”,”GMTV” with Enrique Iglesias. Iris has worked as a Salsa coach on BBC’s “Strictly Dance Fever”
In the last few years Iris has dedicated her career to Latin dance being 2X Salsa Champion (Open World & UK), performing and teaching in the UK and abroad and holds a Lifetime achievement award for her contribution to Salsa in the UK. More recently she has choreographed and directed “El Barrio” a theatre production with Song, Salsa and Live percussion, which completely sold out.
