Why should you dance rumba
Rumba - steps & figures
Rumba - a passionate dance from Latin America
The rumba is a Latin American dance that is about passionate wooing between men and women. The couple dance was voted dance of the year by the World Dance Council in 2013 and is very popular in dance schools around the world. The rumba is an integral part of both the dance courses in popular sport and in tournament sport.
As with ChaChaCha, the origin of rumba is in Cuba. The best-known forerunner of rumba was the habanera, which, however, was danced much faster. In the 1920s, Miguel Matamoros laid the foundation for today's rumba with the slower Bolero Son. At the beginning of the 1930s this dance found its way to us in Europe, where over time it was able to establish itself as a popular ballroom and tournament dance.
The rumba is considered a flirtation between man and woman. The dance steps symbolize a mutual, passionate courtship for one another. Again and again one of the dance partners seems to flee from the other while the other does his best to lure the partner back. Due to the pronounced hip movements and the tight dance posture typical of Latin American dances, the rumba has a thoroughly erotic character. A well danced rumba should let the audience feel the passion between the two dance partners.
The rumba is danced in 4⁄4 time with a tempo of 24 - 27 bars per minute. This makes the dance slower than, for example, the ChaChaCha. The slightly reduced tempo gives the dancers the opportunity to incorporate the very expressive figures well into the dance.
The rumba is danced to melodic Latin American music. This is often characterized by complex rhythms that are generated by numerous percussion instruments. But pop music in 4⁄4 time is also quite suitable for this dance.
The basic step of rumba, also known as the basic cradle step, begins with the right foot for men and with the left foot for women. At counting time 4 there is a step to the side, at counting time 1 there is a pause and the weighing step is danced on counting time 2/3. The basic step can be supplemented by numerous figures such as the women's solo.
