Rumba Dance Lessons

To many people Rumba is considered to be the most sensual and passionate dance of the 10-dances. It is the slowest of the International style Latin dances, is complex and includes many different hip and figure-of-eight body movements. Rumba came to the United States from Latin America in the 1920’s and became popular at cabarets during prohibition.

Instruction is delivered by easy-to-follow video tutorials. There are two videos for each class, a DEMO video demonstrating three moves, and a DANCE video showing how to put those moves together with the music. Our expert teachers will take you step-by-step through each move, with timing, and lead and follow instructions, and show how to join the three moves. Over time, and with practice, you will expand the number of moves in your repertoire, and improve your knowledge and understanding of how to put the moves together seamlessly as you dance.
