The Rumba is a slow, sensual dance with a toe-first step that ripples seduction up the legs and through the hips.
The basic box step is relatively small, compared with the more formal Bolero, and it’s danced to a “slow, quick-quick, slow, quick-quick” beat.
Unlike the poignant Tango, which emphasizes the bittersweet beauty of romance, thorns and all, the Rumba is all about sweetness and sensual pleasure.
The ballroom version, formalized in England in the 1950s, has its roots in African and Cuban dance styles.
At Richard Felix’s River City Dance Studio, students who master the basic box can quickly progress to combinations including the Crossover, Open Break, Underarm Turn, the Cross Body Strut, the Open Cuban Walk, and more.
