Today, I was reflecting on all my dancing achievements, and I must say that learning all of the technical ballroom dances I was trained at Arthur Murray [(16) Rumba, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Merengue, Samba, Mambo, Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Fox Trot, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Hustle, Two-Step, Tango, Bolero & Paso Doble] has been the most rewarding because it further developed me to become an even more well-rounded dancer.
“Rumba is one of the most erotic and sensual of all the Latin dance styles due to its slow rhythms and hip movements that create intense bodily expressions. Rumba is related to Afro-Cuban music, which was introduced to Cuba by African slaves in the sixteenth century. It is also influenced by the music brought to Cuba by Spanish Colonizers. There are several different types of Rumba that have evolved over the years.”
