    *** What is Afro Cuban Rumba? ***

     

    Rumba Cubana is fundamental in your Cuban Salsa Freestyle.

     

    Cuban Rumba - History/Culture

    In Cuba, Rumba is a generic term covering a variety of musical rhythms and associated dances. The rumba has its influences in the music brought to Cuba by Spanish colonizers as well as Africans brought to Cuba as slaves.

     

    Rumba developed in the Cuban provinces of Havana and Matanzas in the late 19th century, as a blending of Congolese-derived drumming styles and Spanish flamenco-singing influences.

     

    Afro-Cuban rumba is entirely different than ballroom rumba, or the African style of pop music called rumba. Rumba developed in rural Cuba, and is still danced in Havana, Mantanzas and other Cuban cities as well as rural areas, especially those with a significant or predominant black community, although now it is infused with influences from jazz and hip hop.

     

    There are three main styles of Cuban rumba: the Yambú (the oldest style dating back to the colonial period), the Guaguancó (the most popular of the three) and the Columbia (the most African-flavored, and also the fastest).

     

    *** What will I learn? & what level is it? ***

     

    In this two hour workshop you will progress through the musicality and movements of Rumba Cubano. Going all the way back to the very roots of Cuba and what makes Salsa as well. This is a must for anyone looking to take their Cuban style to the next level or improve on what they have learnt before.

     

    ALL LEVELS WELCOME. Open to all male and female participants / no experience necessary!

     

     

    Improve your body movement, how to move individual parts of your body including shoulders, hips, arms and working on your posture and stance for when you are dancing Cuban Salsa.

     

    The basic technique of Rumba broken down in easy steps: accessible to everybody.

    The key rhythms of Rumba and "connection" between the dancers and the music simply explained. Follow your emotions on the dance floor, rather than "set moves".

     

    Benefits: The Afro-Cuban dance movements, footwork and corporal expression learnt during the workshop, will enrich any other dance form that you might enjoy and will help you with your confidence, style and improvisation in the dance floor, especially with the co

    re movements (roots) of many Cuban dance.

     

    Learn about how to really move the body and how to break down the body parts, isolate and bring the roots of Cuban Salsa to life in your dancing
