In dance as elsewhere it is alway good to know certain basics that form the identity of what you are doing. And I think we all generally agree that in Kizomba Retrocesso and Vrgula are vital elements of what is in essence a circular dance.
I think there are definitely simpler movements one can use to begin to enjoy kizomba. Movements such as Estrella, for example (Which is why we emphasize it a lot). But I do feel that Retrocesso and Virgla are the movements that capture kizomba - both how it looks and how it feels.
