If you've ever watched ballroom dancers or seen "Dancing With the Stars," you have probably seen the Rumba in action. This theatrical dance tells a story of love and passion between a strong, male lover and a coy, teasing woman. Full of sensual movements, the Rumba is considered by many to be the sexiest of the latin dances. "Rumba" is a term that refers to a variety of dances or a "dance party." It is one of the most popular latin dances and is seen around the world at nightclubs, parties, weddings and so on.

Rumba Dance Characteristics
The Rumba is a very slow, serious, romantic dance that exudes flirtation between the partners - good chemistry makes the movements even more impactful. The dance is fun to watch, as many of its basic dance figures of the dance have a teasing theme in which the lady flirts with and then rejects her male partner, often with apparent sensual aggression. The Rumba spotlights the lady's rhythmic body movements and hip actions resulting in intense - almost steamy - scenes of passion.

Technique
the rumba technique is exactly the same for the man and woman although the woman will tend to be wearing a higher heeled shoe and therefore the technique looks even more pronounced due to the angle of elevation of her foot, also ladies are wearing a dress so their legs are exposed compared to a man wearing trousers. Cuban motion and figure eight are produced trough release of weight over a straight leg which makes the hips create a pendulum action from side to side and slightly diagonal in the direction of the next movement.

Rumba Action
The distinctive hip movement, called Cuban Motion, is a very important element of the Rumba. These hip movements and characteristic sways of the Rumba are generated by the bending and straightening of the knees. The intensity of the Rumba is increased by sharp eye contact that is maintained between the man and the woman. The stillness of the upper body, while adding dramatic intensity, also emphasizes the strong, sensuous leg and foot movements.

The basic rhythm of the Rumba is quick-quick-slow with distinctive side-to-side hip movements. Hip movements are exaggerated, but are not generated by the hips - they are simply a result of good foot, ankle, knee and leg action. When these weight transfers are well-controlled, the hips take care of themselves.


Rumba Music and Rhythm
Rumba music is written with four beats to each measure, in 4/4 time. One full step is completed in two measures of music. The music tempo is usually about 104 to 108 beats per minute. Rumba rhythms, while once influenced by African-style music, have found their way into the country, blues, rock, and other popular music genres. The music is sometimes enhanced by homemade instruments from the kitchen such as pots, pans, and spoons for an authentic sound.

  • Are there any classes on Easter Sunday?

    No, there are no classes on Easter Sunday or on the last two Sundays in December, but private lessons are available for those who wish.

  • Do you organise courses during the summer holidays?

    Yes, we sometimes organise "special courses" during the summer holidays which are independent of the regular group courses.

      So if you go on holiday in the summer you don't lose any classes.

      You can still take these courses if you wish.

  • What is the ratio of men to women in group classes?

    We're very careful about this, we like a balance between men and women for all our couples group classes. If you can enrol, in other words if the system lets you enrol, then the balance still holds.

    If there is a tendency towards imbalance, the system blocks the excess gender to prevent the excess gender from registering. So if you're man or woman and you see that you can't register, just come and check from time to time to see if we can take the gender you belong to again, or send us an e-mail, and once you see that male or female can be registered again, register straight away without waiting for the risk of someone else coming to register.

  • If I register today, do I have to start today or this week?

    No, if you register you are not obliged to start the week you have registered for. During the registration process, you will be asked to choose a start date on the calendar, which will then count as your first day.

    So, for example, you could enrol in March and choose September as your start date, and that September date would then count as the first day of your course.

  • What level should I choose if I've never danced anything?

    If you've never danced anything before, choose the beginners level.

  • What level should I choose if I've danced before?

    If you've danced before, choose the level recommended by your instructor.
