We are excited to have you join us for this third edition of the QUEEN CITY KIZOMBA & ZOUK FESTIVAL, which takes place from FRIDAY, November 17th through SUNDAY, November 19th at the Hilton Charlotte Executive Park, 5624 Westpark Drive, Charlotte, North Carolina.
This three-day festival is expected to bring together not only dancers from Charlotte, but also from the entire country and from abroad. These dancers are actively involved in their communities, working in diverse professions, and aging from 20’s through 60’s years and beyond.
Our festival’s goal is to promote social and cultural events that preserve diversity, inclusion, and multiculturalism, while building partnerships that will allow us to continue to make the Queen City a place of hospitality for the world. It is our hope that proceeds from this festival will also assist in donation to International House.
Since 2015, when it was founded, the festival has seen a tremendous increase in the number of people learning kizomba, both locally and nationally. People come from far and near to seek opportunity to dance Kizomba; hence, the crowd has grown immensely.
With this event, we are lifting up art from the modern fusions of the African and European diasporas in dance, education and instruction.
Thank you in advance for your interest and generosity!
