Rumba Dance Class
Rumba is a Latin dance form that is derived from the work rumbear which means dancing or partying and having fun, in general. Therefore, with the word origin rumba has, it pretty much explains what type of dance it is, and the moves it is comprised of.
Basically, rumba has its roots in Cuba, but it spread over the West Indies and then later on, became a part of ballroom dancing competitions. It is also a dance form that exhibits passion, smoothness and sensuality, with a slight touch of snappy movements.

What to Wear/Bring to Class

For girls, wearing a flowing, sequinned dress may be ideal. On the other hand, men might be required to wear formal attire, minus the suit.
For girls, don’t forget to wear leather-soled or dress shoes that allow you to easily glide on the dance floor. For men, it would be ideal to invest in your own dance shoes.
Lastly, bring bottled water, an extra towel and a pair of slippers every time you come to our session.
