Basic Count - SQQ

Rumba feels great to dance to because, like the Waltz, the timed dance steps fit evenly into 4 beat bars of music. A full Rumba basic takes 2 bars of music. It is sometimes helpful to count 12345678.

Music & History

The best Rumba music is slow, heavy with rhythm and very sexy. Rumba is the Latin dance of love, (that can develop into a dance of lust quite quickly!) and the slow, heavy rhythm is perfect for a lady to seduce and tease her man, but deny him when he gets too close!

Popular Rumbas

  • Follow Me -- Uncle Kracker
  • Kokomo -- Beach Boys
  • Girl from Ipanema -- Frank Sinatra
