Mau & Madeleine

This year perfomers and instructors

Mau & Madeleine


Mau is a trained Kizomba & Semba instructor who has been teaching and organizing Kizomba events and courses since 2013 through AfroDance Rhythm.

After attending many festivals and some master classes since 2011, he decided to attend a series of formal teaching courses under the guidance of the Angolan masters, Mestre Petchu & Vanessa Ginga Pura. He has taught in events in Sweden, Norway, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Benin.

His teaching is practical and focuses on the freedom of the dancer to freely interpret and enjoy the music, be it that he/she dances Kizomba, Urban-Kiz, Tarraxinha or Semba.

In 2014, with his collaborators, he initiated KiSS Festival, the 1st biggest Kizomba festival in Sweden, a festival of Kizomba, Urban-Kiz and Semba.


Madeleine first fell in love with Kizomba in 2013 and has since been an active social dancer traveling all over the globe finding new influences and inspiration along the way!

She has been a part of the dance organization AfroDance Rhythm since 2015 assisting Mau in both regular courses and drop-ins. She always strives to develop her dancing and loves to inspire others to do the same.
