EDDY VENTS

A LOVE OF DANCE

There is something about dance that moves us, that's soul shaking. Being lost in the sound, letting the beat take you to another land. I learned latin dance long ago in the Virgin Islands and that freedom felt like a lifetime ago, until recently. Eddy Vents, one of the top instructors of Kizomba in the world, brought a rhythm and energy that made me feel 16 again. His love and respect for the dance provided an incredible foundation for the United State's budding Kizomba community. The sensuality of the dance is breathtaking, but even more inspiring is its history and its power to provide freedom of another sort.
