Rumba is a type of dance that takes place in Cuba and North America. Since the word “rumba” means “party,” it is not surprising that this is a fan dance. It is quite popular in Cuba and other areas of North America. The rumba requires a dance partner. Usually the woman will do particular distinct steps that draw attention to her. Some steps of the rumba can include picking up and twirling the female dance partner around on the floor.
Before the rumba took place, people were in the ballroom dancing. When rumba came along, people thought that this was ballroom dancing with Cuban music. The rumba is closely associated with the music. Other countries and areas have a certain type of rumba that they do in their countries which may differ from the rumba in other countries.
