The Origins of Rumba

It was the Rumba that, originally, caused the craze for Cuban and Latin American dances in the United States. Danced to music inspired by African rhythms and Spanish melodies, the American-style Rumba is at the base of the Mambo and Cha-Cha.

How to Dance Rumba

The very distinctive hip movement in Rumba, called Cuban motion, is one of the most important elements in this dance. This movement is also used throughout all other Latin Dances.
