Rumba was brought to Cuba by the slaves and developed into the unique Cuban traditional dance we see today. Rumba takes three forms; Yambu is a slower and elegant form of the dance, imitating the movement of old people, while Columbia is fast and athletic and danced mainly (but not always) by the men; Guaguanco is a flirtatious dance of skill and chase between men and women.
Afrocuban Rumba is a playful, energetic and sensual dance which has its roots in African dance rhythms and movements. There are many different styles of street rumba. In this beginners workshop you will learn the basic movements and step patterns, gradually building up to being able to dance a full sequence. Level of class can be set depending of your dance knowledge.
Please contact me if you are interested to take private classes or we can organize a private workshop for minimum group of 6 students.
