Heneco & Adélina
Country: USA – San Francisco
Heneco started dancing Kizomba in 2014 under the tutelage of Eden Kims and Aude Gaelle Deelight. He then perfected his apprenticeship with Curtis Seldon. After an experience as a taxi dancer and as a teacher between November 2015 and March 2016 with the KTT team (Khao Suay Team), he joined the CMD team (Change My Dance) and started teaching in its dance school.
Meanwhile, after being an amateur Salsa and Bachata dancer for many years, Adélina discovered Kizomba at the beginning of 2015 thanks to SBK parties. She met an instructor from Belgium who taught her everything he knew. She assisted him during his classes in Lille and Belgium and won a dance competition organized by Citizen Fox Latin Sunday in Mons in December 2015 which allowed her to give lessons at her first festival.
Heneco and Adélina met later during the Kizz’me Bachamore festival in April 2016 (in Belgium) and left without dancing together. They promised to remedy as soon as possible.
Months later they met again in Paris, where they finally had the opportunity to share a dance. It was a mutual crush. They instantly decided to start a partnership together and plan many projects!
Once they fulfilled their respective commitments, they officially embarked on this new adventure together in February 2017. Since then, they have been booked in numerous festivals around the world where they have given workshops and choreographic boot camps in Spain, Japan, Russia, Romania, Georgia, Switzerland, Belgium, Turkey, Korea, Italy, Germany, and more.
They moved from France (Paris) to the US (California) in 2019 and currently give weekly classes in San Jose. They distinguish themselves with their technical, precise, and musical UrbanKiz dance style. As for their classes, they put pedagogy and fun at the heart of their priorities. Students are here to learn together and have fun! Because what would a class be without laughter?
