Rumba is a Cuban folkloric dance with strong African roots and elements of Spanish influence. It is presented in different variations either as a couple or solo. Study the Complejo de Rumba – Yambú, Guaguancó and Columbia (+Jiribilla) for performance, dancer development, or to bring elements of Rumba into social dance forms to enrich footwork, body movement and responsiveness.
During this intensive you’ll study the three variations of Rumba with their musical differences and individual peculiarities while developing improvisational skills that go hand in hand with spontaneous dances like Rumba.
