About This Class

This class will cover three dance styles particularly in Afro-Cuban-Haitian dances, known as Rumba.

The Yambu, is a modality of the Rumba where the dance partner is made up of a young woman and an old dancer without using the “vacunao” (man-made lascivious movement).

El Guaguancó is another variant of the Rumba where the man tries to “vacunar” the women with a surprising movement that she has to avoid by covering herself.

Columbia is another form of rumba dance where competition is established between the dancer and the percussionist.
