The Best Places to Dance Kizomba in Paris, France

Dance Kizomba in Paris, France

Welcome to the Kizomba Embassy!  Many dancers have been inquiring about the best places to dance Kizomba in Paris. 

Well, in this article I will cover the most popular places to dance all styles of Kizomba in Paris as well as the surrounding areas. 

Paris is a beautiful city known as the city of lights. It is also a wonderful location to dance all styles of Kizomba.

The level and skill of the Kizomba dancers in Paris is very advanced. Undoubtedly as a result of a large number of expert Kizomba dance instructors in the area.

Currently, the dance scene is slowly returning to where it was before the pandemic started. You no longer need a vaccine certificate to enter these parties and nightclubs.  Additionally getting into France now is easy for all fully vaccinated visitors.

Most importantly, I recommend staying near a metro station for easy access to the popular spots around the city.  You can check out our special Kizomba Embassy link for places to stay with great rates and excellent cancellation policies. 

Here are the best places to dance Kizomba in Paris and the surrounding areas.

Let’s Play Kizomba events by Jojo & Jenny!

This Monday night party is a little outside of Paris. However, it is a fantastic event with one of the top Kizomba Dancers worldwide. 

Kizomba Embassy Ambassador Jojo and his lovely dance partner Jenny are in charge of this party. Currently, it is extremely popular with Kizomba Dancers in Paris. 

This party has a great atmosphere with world-renowned Kizomba Instructors such as Enah, Azzedine, and Jojo. It also features multiple popular Kizomba DJs.

Urban Kiz and Kizomba Fusion are the main styles of dance here.

The beginners class begins at 8:30 pm and the Intermediate class starts at 09:30 pm.  The party starts around 10:30 pm until 02:00 am. The cover is 12 euros and also includes a drink.

The current address is 4 Rue du Fort de la Briche, 93200 Saint-Denis, France.

Be sure to check out the Facebook page for updates and any changes to the party location.

Saida

On Tuesday nights the place to be is Saida. This Kizomba party has changed its location twice since March 2022.  Normally it is held at 105 Rue Tolbiac or at 43-45 Rue de la Haie Cock 93300 Aubervilliers. 

Kizomba dance classes are led by world-renown Kizomba instructors such as Kizomba Embassy Ambassadors Val’r & Steffy, Georges & Laura, etc. 

The beginner Kizomba dance class starts at 8:30 pm and the intermediate class starts at 9:30 pm. The party starts around 10:30 pm and by 11 pm the place is packed with dancers.  The cover is around 10 euros depending on your time of arrival. 

The main dance style here includes Urban Kiz, Kizomba Fusion, Tarraxo, and also some traditional Kizomba & Semba. Moreover, remember to check out their Facebook page for the latest updates!

If you are taking the Paris Metro make sure to visit their Facebook page as directions are challenging for foreign visitors. 

For the parties held at 105 Rue Tolbiac, a good option would be to take the Metro to a nearby station and then take a Taxi.  

Libertalia

On Thursday nights during the warmer weather months, the hottest Kizomba dance party is at Libertalia. 

For the summer of 2022, the new party name is Matuvu Paris Kizomba. Likewise, make sure to check Facebook for the latest events information. 

Here you will find many of the top Kizomba Artists from Paris to include Felician & Isabella, Jojo, Curtis, Laurent, and Enah. 

The main styles here include Urban Kiz, Kizomba Fusion & Tarraxo.

This lounge is on the Seine river and has beautiful views at night. The parties normally go until 0200am.  It has both an inside and outside area. Moreover, this event is very popular with visiting kizomba dancers from the USA and also Asia.

Libertalia Lounge is located just outside the city center. The address is Quai N ° 6 Jean Compagnon 94200 Ivry Sur Seine.

I suggest taking an Uber to and from the lounge as there aren’t any nearby metro stations. 

The Eiffel Tower Kizomba Festival

The Eiffel Tower Kizomba Festival is organized each year by the one and only Echo Ogna. This festival is very popular and is held every August in Paris near the Eiffel Tower.

Echo does a fantastic job of bringing in a variety of artists, DJs, and also music. As a result, attendees enjoy a fun weekend of dancing. 

Regardless of what style of Kizomba you like, you will find it here. This festival includes Urban Kiz, Kiz Fusion, Traditional Kizomba, Semba, Tarraxo, and more.

Last year the festival was held from August 13th to the 16th.  Many of the events were held in the festival hotel Yooma.  This year the majority of the parties will take place on a boat.

Last year on Saturday all dance classes and parties were held aboard a boat on the Seine river.  Without a doubt, Saturday’s boat parties were the highlight of the festival.

If you get a chance to visit Paris this August make sure that you don’t miss this special Kizomba Festival.

  1. Hi Brian,
    Thank you for the article. Would be great if you could mention which of these parties are Urban kiz/fusion, which are kizomba.
    Some people prefer a certain style. Would be great to know which one is which.
    One of the greatest authentic Kizomba parties in Paris I know if of, is “Back to Basic”, for example.
    Regards.

    1. Hi Elena,

      You made a good point! Some of the events are hosted by different Dj’s so it really depends on the night.
      For example, at Saida, they played Urban Kiz, Kiz Fusion, Traditional Kizomba, and Semba throughout the night.
      At the Eiffel Tower Kizomba Festival, the DJs did a great job of playing Urban Kiz, Kiz Fusion, Traditional Kizomba, Semba, etc.
      For both LPK & Libertalia I would say they were more Urban Kiz and Kiz fusion.
      I will try to add this information in the next update.

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. Hi Brian!
    Thanks for a great article!
    One question, did you find anything on wednesdays? I’m looking for something to start off with before the tarraxofestival which begins on a thursday. Now that Kao Suey is not there I don’t know where to look.

    Kind regards,
    Anna

    1. Hi Anna,

      Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any places to dance Kizomba on Wednesday nights. You might want to reach out to Echo Ogna on Facebook and see if he has any recommendations for you. He is the organizer for the Eiffel Tower Kizomba Festival and another Kizomba Festival in Paris. Enjoy the Tarraxo Festival next month!

      Regards,
      Brian

  3. Brilliant intel, thanks Brian.

    Do you know of any DAYTIME Kizomba dancing in Paris?
    Indoors, at a park, classes, practice, doesn’t matter.
    Especially during the spring: May and beyond…

    1. Thanks, I am not aware of any daytime Kizomba events in Paris. Most of the dancing outdoors at the main square areas that I saw was Salsa and Bachata. Hopefully, Paris will have some new Kizomba daytime events next summer!

  4. Hi Brian,
    Thank you for your good reportage.
    Did you find anything for Friday or Saturday or Sunday in Central Paris?
    We are going February 18-21 then flying to Benin for West African Kizomba Festival and then return to Paris March 1-4, so we have some good opportunities to dance.
    Thanks ,
    Suzanne

    1. Hi Suzanne,
      Unfortunately, I didn’t find any good spots to dance Kizomba on the weekends.
      Have a good trip and let me know if you find any new places to dance.
      Regards,
      Brian
