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 poor neighbourhood in Lisboa called Quinta da Montanha, Portugal. 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 Tradicionall Dances.
Today we teach workshops and give shows arround teh world and is our goal to give people our prespective of Kizomba and Semba.
