Learn to Dance Rumba at the BDC

Why learn how to Rumba:

Rumba is romantic and sensual. It’s the perfect “slow dance” for weddings, parties, and all your social events.

Where it comes from:

Rumba is a broad term for a family of Afro-Cuban dances including Danzon, Guaracha, and Son which evolved from the blending of African and Spanish cultures during the colonial era. Ballroom Rumba comes from Son, one of the slower of these dances. Rumba came to the United States in the 1920’s and grew in popularity in the 30’s and 40’s. Rumba was standardized as a Ballroom Dance in the 1950’s and is one of the Rhythm dances that dancers compete in today.

Fun fact:

Rumba is known as “the dance of love”. Perfect for weddings, Valentine’s Day, and a romantic evening out with your special someone.
