Bio ~ The Journey


Genevieve became entranced by the world of movement at age 3 when she started classical ballet. In 2011 she completed her full time performance studies at ED5International (Aus). Genevieve's travels to South America and Africa have allowed her unique training and performance opportunities in the styles of samba, salsa, axe, sabar, djembe, cabaret and burlesque. Later her travels to India and Nepal sparked a fascination with alternative movement modalities, dance healing practice and meditation.  

In 2015 Genevieve moved to Bogota, Colombia where she danced with Afro contemporary company Zarabana, and discovered her passion for Kizomba. She danced with Light Dance Project in Bogota, specialising in Kizomba and Semba.  Since 2015 Genevieve has taught and performed in numerous Kizomba festivals across Australia and Colombia. She is currently based in Sydney teaching Kizomba, Semba and Urban kiz with her dance partner Adriano Raiola. Genevieve wishes to express and teach the healing magic, and creativity of Kizomba in her classes and performances.
