SALSA AND RUMBA WORKSHOP

SALSA AND RUMBA WORKSHOP

Salsa & Rumba Dance Workshop, begins with our best dancers performing an impressive interpretation of Cuba’s two endemic dance styles. You will then learn some of the history of salsa music in Cuba, the basic steps involved in dancing, and its contributions and influences around the world. The history of rumba will cover its African Abakpa, Bantu and Yoruba roots, its roots in Spain’s “coros de clave,” and the three distinct styles of this characteristically Cuban musical genre, Columbia, Guaguanco, and Yambu. You will then receive individualized salsa dance instructions. Rumba dancing lessons are not included in this workshop, unless specifically requested before-hand, please leave the rumba to the Cubans! (3-4 hours)
