A Slow and Sultry Sequence
The Rumba One is a lovely sequence dance and a great introduction to the Latin rhythms. The timing is the tricky thing to pick up on in this one, as the main step of each move is danced on beat 2 of the bar, rather than beat 1. Once you’re in the rhythm, though, it remains constant throughout the whole sequence.
In the Beginner Class this month we’ll take you through the whole routine, which includes some classic Rumba moves like the Spot Turn, the Shoulder-to-Shoulder and the Cucarachas. We'll also throw in some basic Rumba technique to get that true Latin feel. Enjoy!
