RUMBA DEMONSTRATION & CLASS

Watch a performance and learn the basics of Rumba, Cuba’s most recognized dance. 


Cuba’s Minister of Culture once said, "Rumba without Cuba is not rumba, and Cuba without rumba is not Cuba.” 

Rumba is an energetic, rhythmic dance of Spanish and African origins. Conga drums, dried gourds – even wooden boxes – set the speed and style as seen in backyards and theaters across the country. We’ll watch a group of professional dancers perform Rumba in its finest forms and learn the meanings behind each dance move. Of course, we’ll join in on the fun and learn the basics of Rumba. 

This activity is available on our Undiscovered Cuba tour or can be integrated into a custom-made itinerary
