****World Kizomba Award Winner 2018*****Goes to Laury Esmeralda and Mario Jordao, currently residing in Paris, France.  They are also the organizers of the "Angolan Tour" and the event directors of Space Applause and the Emerald Company. They are preparing the 2nd edition of diving at the root of Kizomba in July 2019. We are happy to welcome them to Houston and grateful for their support in helping us come together to learn Semba, here in Houston.  

Mario jordão and Laury Esmeralda have won various kizomba/semba competitions. Mario was the 2015 National Champion of Kizomba & Semba dances in Angola. Laury Esmeralda won 3rd place at the Africadançar 2013 competition and was winner of the 2013 Semba Show Competition in France. They started working together at the end of 2015, the public started to love them with their videos on social media and they started to get invitations to teach all over the world. In 2018, they decides to represent Kizomba and Semba, in the France National Competition recognized by France Dance Federation, and they became France Kizomba Champions in May 2018. More recently, the couple received the prize of "BEST SEMBA DANCERS", in the new event named "World Kizomba Award" based in Lyon, France.

Laury is the founder of the Esmeralda Company Kizomba School in Paris, France. Working alongside Mario, the two have traveled across the world sharing their passion for kizomba, Semba and dancing in general with all the dancers who wants to learn the dances from their Angolan origin. Laury and Mario have been organizing trips to Angola since 2016, in an effort to educate visitors and to help them understand why Kizomba is part of a culture and not just a dance and to discover the country and understand the culture.

We are happy to welcome them to Houston and grateful for their support in helping us come together to learn Semba, here in Houston.

He is one of the most versatile dancers and one of the most sought after international instructors in Europe and around the world.  Dino currently lives in Amsterdam and loves traveling to share his knowledge, history, and culture of his country and the dances he teaches. We are extremely excited to have him here in Houston for the first time. 

****Dj Nando (Boston) and Dj Adrenalina(Houston); both Angolan and both have been playing for the biggest events and for the biggest organizers in the industry and across the world. We are excited to have them play for our event!
