Stanley Noel and Tiffani Knowles

Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Tiffani Knowles co-teaches a beginners Kizomba class with Stanley Noel - co-founder of Kizomba Heart2Heart. She is a native of Miami, Florida and he is a native of Haiti. However, the pair both fell in love with Kizomba dance while living in New York City.

While Stanley has a background in Kompa and Zouk music and dance from his native island of Haiti, Tiffani trained for years in ballet, jazz, tap and Afro-Caribbean dance styles before being introduced to Angolan dance styles while attending graduate school in New York. After receiving her master's in Arts and Humanities Education for New York University, she stumbled upon the newest African dance crazes of Afro-House, Azonto, Kizomba and Semba in New York and actively began training within the Kizomba Heart2Heart community in Brooklyn, New York. She met Stanley, one of the promoters of this Kizomba community hub in Brooklyn. He doubled as an event deejay (DJ Pash).

After they both relocated to South Florida in 2016, they planted roots and now dance, perform and teach in the region.
