What is Afro Cuban Rumba?
In Cuba, there are different types of dance. The best known are: Yambu, Guaguanco and Columbia.
This intensive class will focus on Guaguancò, which is a couple dance that represents a “flirtatious” game between man and woman. In fact, most of the steps are used a lot in Cuban salsa when you for example are dancing alone.
Why should one learn an Afro Cuban dance? It is important to learn the origins of this amazing dance “Salsa” to gain a better understanding of the music, body movement and traditions of the fascinating Cuban culture.
