Rumba 003 Beginner Class Demo Moves


Rumba Basic Moves – Fan, Alemana Turn, Opening Out to Right and Left

LEVEL: Beginner
STYLE: Rumba
Three figures that are so important to learn in this dance, Closed Basic Movement is integral to so many combinations of figures, as is Fan as a lead to more advanced steps. Take care that although the couple moves away from each other to achieve ‘Fan Position’ the distance should remain within an arm’s length, the couple’s steps are quite different, the man should take care to lead the lady’s closing step on her first step of Alemana. Opening Out to Right and Left is like Hand to Hand as lady, note the Cucaracha action of the man.
