At Generation Kiz the goal is to unleash your inner dancer. One of the beauties of this dance is that we are allowed to express in any way we feel as long as we keep in mind the basic principles. This is exactly what we teach in our classes.
We focus on a new generation of dancers. Dancers that are able to keep up with all the new styles in this constantly evolving dance. We believe that the best classes are the ones that prepare you for social dancing. We focus on staying up to date with the current generation of dancers to integrate different following and leading styles from around the world to become versatile and adaptive dancers.
Generation not only stands for a different way of teaching, of growing a new community, but also for trying to have a positive influence on the people around us. To create a generation of dancers that radiate respect and authenticity, a generation that dances through life in whatever way or emotion they feel.
To unleash your inner dancer. Everyone is unique in their way of expression and dancing. At Generation Kiz we focus on helping you find your own way of dance while still staying true to the fundamentals of Urban Kiz.
