Dancing is like dreaming with your feet.
MIGUEL Y SUSANA
We were born both in Lisboa, Miguel Monteiro on the 19th of April 1979 and Susana Amado on the 3rd of June 1993.
Miguel was born in a poor neighbourhood in Lisboa called Quinta da Montanha (Portugal). He started dancing Afro-Brazilian Dances and Capoeira at the age of 16. Kizomba came into his life in a early age because of all the Angolan cultural influences that was around him in his youth. He learned to dance with his Angolan friends but he has as a reference the Mestre Petchu, because of all he represents, not only as a dancer but also as someone who cares about how the Angolan culture is passed on.
In 2008 Miguel met Susana Amado, in a dance school called BSM Academia when Miguel wanted to learn Salsa, and after 3 years of dancing together they started teaching Kizomba and Semba. Susana Amado is a dancer since she was 10, dancing Portuguese Typical Dances.
Today they teach workshops and give shows around Europe and is their goal to give people our perspective of Kizomba and Semba.
Recommendation of the organization:
Their communication in dance makes them definitely perfect. Their performance is something not to be missed.
