Hello my name is Rosario Nene Ortega. I am a dance instructor in Hollywood Florida. In this clip we're going to talk about the Rumba, the Latin Dance. When we do the Rumba it's very basic. Slow quick quick slow, but I also know that there are pivots and turns. So I'm going to tell you about the turn that's called spiral. So you step forward with the right, you're going to step forward with the left and then you're going to pivot to the right and once you pivot you're going to take your leg. Okay? So it's forward forward, pivot and as you pivot you are going to cross your leg creating a spiral. Okay I'm going to do this from this other angle so you can better see what I'm going to do. So just step step, I'm going to pivot and as I pivot I do the spiral. This is the pivot in the Rumba, Latin Dance. NeNe Ortega in Hollywood Florida.
