Empowering Women to Dance with an African & Caribbean Flare
By Christina Mcintosh
Your instructor, Christina Mcintosh
My name is Christina Mcintosh founder of Mckiztosh dance. I am a dancer, choreographer and dance instructor specialising in African and Caribbean dance. My classes are currently in kizomba dance which is an Angolan dance that originates from semba and has Caribbean zouk influences. The classes I run are for ladies and there is a strong sense of community within the class, women empowering women to improve and express themselves through dance. I first came across Kizomba through a local salsa night in 2016. They played a track of kizomba, and the dance looked so beautiful I had to learn it. I’m so glad I did! Before, I was very shy and found it difficult to talk to people and make friends. I was also very scared of doing the wrong moves. However, since dancing kizomba I have met so many new people. It has made me more outgoing and given me such happiness. Now, most of my good friends are ones that I have met through the dance, and I am so grateful. I have been able to embrace my body, how it moves and celebrate it, as no one else moves the way I do. I have been able to go to festivals and enjoy the dance abroad and in other cities in the UK. I have assisted teaching locally in my city, and I have taught internationally in Lisbon and Malaga. Since then, I completed my teachers training in November of 2019, and I have been able to share my passion through teaching my ladies styling kizomba classes in Birmingham and online through zoom.
