RUMBA DANCE AND DRUMMING

Take in a live performance of Cuban Rumba before joining in to learn a few moves.

The energetic, rhythmic style of Rumba is everywhere in Cuba. And with roots in Afro-Cuban heritage, the music and dance is a form of national pride. Walking down the streets on Sunday, it’s not uncommon to see friends enjoying a dance as someone taps the drums – or anything that can sustain a beat. 

We’ll meet some of the dancers and drummers who lead these community Rumbas and watch a live performance before joining in on the fun.

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