Rumba dance has four beats, but you're only going to dance three, meaning you'll hold the first count. Start dancing the rumba with help from a professional dance instructor and performer in this free video on Latin dance steps.
Hello, I am Nene Ortega. I am a dance instructor and performer with neneortegabaila.com. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to dance rumba. You will need a space to practice. Rumba has four beats and we're going to dance only three. That means that the first step we're hold, hold two beats in this way. We're going to step hold, lean side, together. Going back; step hold, side, together. So, it's going to sound like slow, quick, quick. Slow, quick, quick. Slow, quick, quick. Slow, quick, quick. So, this is a box that we're doing in the rumba. That will be the very basic step for the rumba, another Latin dance. Notice that we're also very nicely framed, and we move our hips because it's Latin dancing. For you, Nene Ortega.
