This is a cry and a call to all organizers, taxi and Guest dancers to help make this Kizomba and Urban Kiz scene healthy again!
Years ago, because there were much more women then men in this dance scene.
People came up with a solution to help out with this problem.
"Taxi or Guest Dancers"
But these days, that solution has turned into a curse.
◦ A curse that a Kizomba Urban Kiz events cannot survive without men who help out in the gender ratio gap.
◦ A curse that women don't go to events where there are no taxi or guests dancers for them to dance with.
◦ A curse that male dancers don't go to certain events when they are not booked or given a free pass to attend an event as a taxi or guest dancer.
Troughout the years we have slowly created a monster out of our own creativity.
This scene is suppose to relieve the stress and tensions of our daily lives,
but it seems to add much more stress and disappointments to our passion.
For years now, women have been the center of the Kizomba scene.
Most of the women in this scene are the once who buy a pass to go to a festival.
These women buy a pass so a festival can exist,
These women buy a pass so an organizer can make money.
These women buy a pass so people who love this scene and love this dance can go out and have fun at events.
But now this monster we have created is getting out of control.
More and more men in this scene are noticing the benefit of being a man in this scene.
And so, more of these men are starting as a taxi or guest dancer, to visit an event for free.
But it's time to stop trying to keep this ship afloat, by making holes in it.
There will come a day, that women will wake up and stop helping to keep the ship afloat.
We should all help out where we can!
We all have to help make this dance scene healthy again!
If we keep give men free entrance to every event, there will also come a day that even these men will not enjoy going to events anymore.
And that will be the beginning of the end, and we will even lose those men as guest or taxi dancers, and this ship will sink to the bottom of the ocean.
Organizers and taxi or guest dancers should start enjoying this dance and going to festivals again to enjoy their passion.
If we all love this dance scene and want to keep enjoying it, we should start helping out making this dance scene healthy again.
We should not take these words as personal atacks, but as a warning for a catastrophic problem!
So therefore i Donnovan, will not attend events as a guest dancer anymore. If I want to join an event I will pay my own pass.
And both men and women should help and do the same, it’s also for organizers to keep organizing these events for us to enjoy and expressing our passion.
Please let's unite now before it's too late!
