Couple dances: Rumba

Rumba is the most romantic of Latin American dances, inspired by Cuban social dances. In general, steps are kept compact and the dance is danced without any rise and fall. This style is authentic, as is the use of free arms in various figures. The basic figures derive from dance moves observed in Havana in the pre-revolutionary period, and have developed their own life since then. It is easy to dance it since the suitable rhythm structure is often heard in popular music.
