Stanley Décembre is a French Urban Kiz dancer and teacher from French Guiana based in North-West England. He runs regular Urban Kiz/kizomba classes in Manchester every Thursday as well as teaching at dance festivals across the country. Here are a few pictures from his portrait session which also took place in Manchester.

Urban Kiz developed from the dance of Kizomba which has it’s roots in Angola, Africa. Over the years Urban Kiz and Kizomba have grown massively and is dance worldwide. There are many festivals which have been created around this dance form that take place all over the world. Personally, I have been to festivals that have taken place in Europe and Asia and I look forward to including Africa to that list soon.
