"If you dance with your heart, your body will follow"
DançAmore basically stands for dancing from the heart which is our main philosophy in dancing. This is a motto which we live by when we’re giving our classes, performing on stage or during social dancing. We mainly focus on Bachata and Kizomba, but we have experience in other dances as well, such as Salsa, Mambo and Cha Cha.
DançAmore Dance Company was founded by Glen & Khristy, both born on a sunny little island in the Caribbean Sea called Aruba. They have been living in the Netherlands since 2004 and together they share the love and passion for dance. They started dancing back in 2006 at SalsaRoy (now PlazaDanza) in Groningen. After a few years of taking Salsa and Bachata classes they moved to The Hague in 2009 and started their teaching careers at La Salsa. In 2011 they got the chance to compete in The Dutch Championships (Bachata devision) and won the title of Dutch Bachata Champions. After winning this competition they started teaching Bachata at Salsaventura and many bootcamps all over the country. In 2011 they also performed their first show together and many more followed. The desire to keep developing their dancing skills continued and in 2012, while Kizomba began to gain popularity in The Netherlands, they decided to take Kizomba classes and teacher trainings. To develop their Kizomba skills even more they went to Portugal to take private classes from well-known Kizomba Instructor Ben Pedrosa. Since 2012 they have been giving Bachata choreography classes as well and this led to their own official show team in 2013. In 2013 they officially started their own company "DançAmore Dance Company", mainly focussing on Bachata and Kizomba classes, workshops and shows.
Since then we have been performing and teaching in The Netherlands and abroad for example in Aruba, Curacao and Portugal. We keep developing our dancing skills to bring you the best quality in our classes and workshops. We believe that working together with other dance companies and teachers only makes you grow and we are always open for collaborations and projects. Stay tuned for some new projects coming soon!
