The Rumba originates back to Cuba in the late 19th century. It is a slow, serious, and romantic dance with flirtation between the partners.
American Style Rumba is commonly danced in the United States, with box-like basic figures. The Rumba spotlights the lady’s rhythmic body movements and hip actions resulting in intense, almost steamy, scenes of passion. This dance of love is one of the most popular Latin dances and is seen around the world at nightclubs, parties, weddings and dance competitions. Simple and versatile for the beginner while offering a fun challenge to the competitor, it is no wonder Rumba, with it’s seductive rhythm, is one of the most popular dances we teach.
