It should be a cozy party with about 80 guests to celebrate his comeback with friends in Frankfurt. Narc6’s Non-Stop Kizomba & Comeback Party, however, quickly developed into a larger dimension that he himself had not expected. Read below why it was one of the highest quality, but also one of the hottest parties of this year.

Return to Frankfurt

Narc6 released his event at the end of June. It was the first event he organized entirely himself. There was no time for this during his studies, especially since he lived in Munich for 6 months. This should change with the return to Frankfurt / Gießen. Since the inauguration of Motsi Mabuse’s dance school, he and the Let’s dance juror are working together. Narc6 is responsible for the monthly Urban Kiz partys in the dance school.

Workshops, Social and Party

The Non-Stop Comeback Party is his own event and was close to his heart. He wanted to make a statement: “I’m back! And that’s right!” 80 guests were originally planned. Selected workshops during the day, primarily with local teachers who have accompanied and supported him in the scene for years. Among them Lamsca Sagnia with Christine Kira, Lio Frei, Archi Roots and Kalypso NeverEnough from Switzerland. Chrissi, who also supported during the partner workshops in addition to her lady styling workshop, represented the female power. During the battle “men vs. women styling” both genders showed what they could do.

Perfect balance man / woman

As DJs he got strong support from DJ Malick from France, DJ Harryz Kizz and DJ Archi Roots and of course he himself was also on the turntables. Already during the social dance they gave real power. The party in the gold-black look as well as the after-party until 5 o’clock in the morning completed the daily program. But that’s not enough. Narc6, in addition to supporting local artists and DJs, also attaches great importance to a good male/female balance. Regularly he checked the participant statistics, responded promptly to imbalance and invited outstanding taxi dancers to compensate. The result – a perfect balance between man and woman.

In the end, due to the concept and the professional advertising, well over 100 guests from all over came from Stuttgart, Munich, France, Switzerland and of course Frankfurt itself. The atmosphere was excellent, the dancing level very high and nobody had to wait long for a dance. There were two dance floors, one for Urban Kiz and one for Kizomba and Semba.

Hot outside temperatures could not dampen the mood

The mood could not be dampened, even though the heat was despite the air conditioning almost unbearable. At over 36° degree outside temperature, you know what you have to be prepared for. At such a high temperature, the water consumption was high and the bar even ran out of water towards the end.

If you wanted to save money, you could get the tickets cheaper in advance, because the box office prices were shocking for some guests. 30 € was the price for the evening party without social dance (the advance price was 10€ at the beginning). This was intended though as he wants to encourage the guests to buy tickets in advance. Only then a reasonable male-female balance can be ensured and planned.

Conclusion

A very successful first event by DJ Narc6 as organizer. Overall, the feedback was consistently positive and everyone agrees that there should be more events from and with him. The good news is that the next editions will take place on December 28, 2019 and next year on July 26-27, 2019. We’re already excited!

Non-Stop Kizomba Party

Her own dance school, that was always Motsi Mabuse’s dream. She is well-known through the German dance show “Let’s dance” on RTL. On September 2nd 2017 her dream came true. She wanted Kizomba to be part of her offer and therefore she invited JD & Chrissi, two internationally well-known Kizomba artists, to be her partner. We met Motsi in her dance school in Eschborn (Frankfurt), took a look at the school and her offer and report about it in the following article.

Interview with Motsi

Motsi, you were an active Standard-Latin-dancer and you became famous far beyond the dance scene through the RTL show „Let’s dance“. What motivated you to open your own dance school?

It was always my goal. During our active dancing times we were on tour a lot, we performed or trained. But you don’t really earn a lot of money with this. I love the dance and made my passion my profession. Furthermore, I wanted a second mainstay.

How was your path to your own dance school? Were there any obstacles?

I started my active search four years ago. I had many problems to find the right space in Frankfurt that is suitable for all dance styles. That was very important for us as we worked for a long time on our current concept.

Next to the well-known ballroom and latin dances you offer also special courses like West Coast Swing or Urban Kiz. How did you come up with this idea?

I fell in love with the different dance styles. They are lots of fun!

What do you like most about Urban Kiz?

I love Urban Kiz! I danced it a few years ago in South Africa and already decided there that I absolutely want to teach it in our dance school.

Do you dance Kizomba yourself?

I’m a huge fan and I am learning, so… yes! J

For Urban Kiz you hired two internationally well-known external trainers. How did this cooperation start?

JD & Chrissi approached us when we started searching for dance teachers. I think they are both very likable and very good teachers.

Which regular Urban Kiz courses do you offer?

Every Tuesday from 7 – 8:30 p.m. a beginner class and from 8:30 – 10:00 p.m.m an advanced class. Unfortunately, JD & Chrissi can only come on Tuesdays that’s why our Kizomba night is always on Tuesdays.

You organize a monthly Kizomba Party with well-known DJs – what can we look forward to?

I always look forward to these parties in my school. Today on Halloween we invited DJ Narc6 and on November 28th DJ Lenhy from Paris.

The dance school

Motsi Mabuse HalloweenSince September 2017 “Motsi Mabuse’s Taunus Tanzschule” is located on the 9th floor in the middle of an industrial area in Eschborn.  It offers a breath-taking 360° view onto Frankfurt and its surroundings. Especially at night, when the lights glow in the dark, you almost rather take a look out of the window than to focus on your dance. Two big wall mirrors, a great foyer with a big bar and seats as well as a cloakroom is offered by the dance school as well as their attention to detail. Thus the dance school was decorated entirely in Halloween style to create just the right mood. Just the high beverage prices were a bit shocking gut maybe not unusual for a big city. A cuba libre costs 7,50 € and a coce 3,10 €.

Workshop with JD & Chrissi

JD Chrissi Kizomba JD & Chrissi gave their Urban Kiz Workshop (open level) before the party from 8:30 – 9:30 p.m. The participants brought very different skill levels, from beginner to advanced. The ratio was quite balanced with just a very small surplus of women. More than 50 people participated in the Workshop, before the official party with DJ began at 9:00 p.m..

Kizombaparty with DJ Narc6

More than 125 guests arrived from all over the place: Stuttgart, Heidelberg, Mannheim – even a dancer from East Frisia found her way to Motsi Mabuse‘s Kizomba Party. Narc6 played a diversified mix, from soft sounds up to harder Tarraxa-Beats he offered something for every taste. He has a knack for the audience and adapts his music accordingly. The atmosphere was very personal and jolly. A true feel-good program for the Kizomba soul. Even after the official end of the party at 1p.m. the people kept on dancing.

Our conclusion

A great dance school with a diverse offer and a set Kizomba program, lead with lots of love by Motsi and her husband Evgenij, who are both present at their parties. The location on the upper floor of a multi-storey building with the view over Frankfurt expresses a lot of charme. All thumbs up from our side. KizzMag looks forward to coming back.

Don’t miss it!  – the next events takes place on November 28th with DJ Lenhy from Paris.
