Albena de Assis

Learn some of the basic steps for Afrohouse, a dance style popular in a number of African countries. Angolan Afrohouse is strongly influenced by kuduro, an up-tempo and energetic dance style. Other styles include ndombolo, abrir, sal, sangra and more!

Albena de Assis is an experienced dance professional with over 15 years of teaching experience. Raised in Luanda, Angola, she moved to Toronto in 2000 and founded AfroLatino Dance Company in 2005, the first dance school in the city offering kizomba, semba and afrohouse classes. Her philosophy is to showcase each one of the dances she teaches, Angolan, Cuban or Brazilian, in its original form, presenting therefore the rich layers of culture each embodies.
