La Bomba

Routine Length: 16 Bars
Time Signature: 4/4
Musical Selection: Tango
Tempo Range: 28 to 32 bars per minute.

The La Bomba may also be danced to more traditional Tango music in 2/4 time. In this case the routine would be 32 bars long, and have a scripted tempo range of 56 to 64 bars per minute.

Long-Steps currently teaches the La Bomba periodically during our Advanced Classes, and by Private Tuition. Long-Steps teaches the La Bomba according to a combination of Russ Hesketh’s New Vogue Championship Dances (6th Ed.) and Neville Boyd’s New Vogue Sequence Dancing and the Viennese Waltz.
