ACADEMY OF CUBAN FOLKLORE AND DANCE PRESENTS 'RUMBA'

SALSAFEVER UK proudly presents 'RUMBA' - the first ever major Rumba Instructional Cuban dance DVD to be found in the UK.

Due to the huge demand for an instructional Rumba DVD, we've been hard at work these past few months, viewing and sourcing for our customers the very best in authentic Rumba Instruction. And we think we've found it !

So what is Rumba? Rumba is a folk dance combining a family of music rhythms and dance styles that originally came from Africa - travelling to Cuba via the slave trade. It incorporates both Spanish and African elements. And often features complex footwork and violent hip movement.

This DVD incorporates 2 types of Cuban Rumba:

# Yambú - a slower, more basic style where people (often older generations) dance in a more relaxed manner
# Guaguancó - a fast to moderate pace, the rhythm can be complex and sometimes couples dance flirtatiously. The man throws his arm/leg/pelvis in the direction of his femael partner - as if to attempt a sexual touch with her. She in turn entices him, but turns away when he reciprocates by reaching out.

José Carrión's (Cuba) Rumba dance instructional DVD. Filmed in Santiago de Cuba with members of Ballet Folklórico Cutumba, this 2 DVD set features detailed instruction on the rumba dance forms yambú and guaguancó in addition to demonstrations & performances. José shares with the viewers the methodology he has used as a professor in Cuba to train generations of dancers. All you need to get you Rumba'in like a pro on the dance floor.
