About Cuban Rumba Dance

Welcome to our Cuban Rumba Classes

The Cuban rumba is associated with African culture but also features elements of Antillean culture and Spanish flamenco. A symbol of marginal Cuban society, the practice developed in poor neighbourhoods of cities, shanty towns and rural areas spreading from west to east of the country. The Cuban rumba with its chants, movements, gestures and music acts as an expression of resistance and self-esteem while evoking grace, sensuality and joy to connect people. Transmission occurs via imitation within families and neighbourhoods.
