Nephew Drummer | Seattle, WA 



Nephew was born and raised in San Francisco, California, but now resides in Seattle, Washington. After falling in love with Kizomba (African Tango) music and dance a few years back, Nephew quickly obtained Instructor Training from some of the most prestigious and well-loved Kizomba master-instructors in the world, Mestre Petchu and Vanessa Pura Ginga from Portugal by way of Angola.

More recently, Nephew spent 6 months in South America where he started a Kizomba dance community from the ground up. Shortly after, Nephew endeavored to expand his dance vocabulary further by traveling extensively throughout Europe, with training stops in Portugal, France and Spain. Nephew’s favorite part of teaching is allowing students to explore the beauty of a strong connection to both the music and to their partner on the social dance floor.
