In October, Rumba will be taught in the beginning partner dance classes. Rumba is a beautiful Latin dance with Afro-Cuban origins. It is danced to slower music than Cha Cha or Salsa. Rumba music was made popular in the United States in the late 1920’s by orchestra leaders such as Xavier Cugat. Besides slower Latin music, there are also a lot of contemporary non Latin songs that Rumba can be danced to. Some of these are My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion, You’ve Got A Friend by James Taylor and Fields of Gold by Sting.
No partners or experience are required. We will rotate partners during the classes. Also, any ladies that want to lead and any men that want to follow are very welcome.
At this time, full vaccination plus at least one booster will be required. Face masks will likely also be required but will depend on the local community Covid status at the time the classes start.
In addition to being fun and a great way to get exercise, partner dancing is good for our muscles, balance, brains and spirit!
To register & for any questions, please contact me at email@example.com or call (415) 265-7590. Please bring your vaccination card or photo of it to the first class you take as well as a face mask in the event it is required.
