Rumba Classes

Rumba is a dance organically related to the rumba genre of Afro-Cuban music. Throughout the history one may trace several styles of dances called "rumba".

Beg Cuban Style Rumba
Rumba developed in the Cuban provinces of Havana and Matanzas in the late 19th century. As an energetic Afro-Cuban dance, Rumba was often suppressed and restricted because it was viewed as dangerous and lewd. Learn the basics of this sensual and fun dance!
Beg Rumba
Looking for a romantic, sensual Latin dance that showcases slow, sensual body styling (especially for the ladies)? The Rumba forfeits some of the smoothness of its close cousin the Bolero, and exchanges it for sharper movements, swaying hips, and lots of attitude! This class is an overview on posture and frame, and moves such as box steps, open breaks, and underarm turns you'll use to dance to a song such as Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart". Try this class and learn the simplest, most sensual rhythm dance there is!
Beg Rumba Series
Learn the basics of this slow, sexy latin dance. It's one of the most romantic of the latin dances so let your passion show!
Beg Vacunao Style Rumba
This stylish and sexy variation on Rumba will have your hips moving! Learn the basics of this fun dance.
Int Rumba
Rumba is meant to be a slow, a playful exchange between partners, and a lot of this is expressed through the lines and styling of your body. It's not enough to just "think sexy" - you need to learn the body movement techniques that will make your rumba look stylish. This class is a more detailed look at techniques such as Cuban motion, and moves such as crossovers, fans, aidas, and Cuban walks. Try this class to express your Rumba with sensual detail!
Int Rumba Series
Romantic and seductive! Now that you have the basics, the patterns will become a little more advanced, and we will start to discuss hip action. Yes, guys can move their hips, too!
Adv Rumba
A skillful Rumba is a game between leader and follower. The man makes aggressive, confident advances, and the lady accepts his flirtations only to coyly push him away. This class is a more detailed focus of techniques such as call and response, and variations such as alemanas, natural tops, and hip twists. Try this class if you plan to showcase, compete, or just want to take your social dancing to the highest level!
Adv Rumba Series
Should be comfortable with basics and able to pick up new, challenging steps. There will be more emphasis on technique and Cuban motion.
