The Rumba dance originated as a dance of marriage, or also known as “the dance of love.”

It became a popular ballroom dance style when it was introduced to the U.S. in 1933. The idea of this style of dance is to take each step quickly, and prevent placing weight into that particular step. The Rumba utilizes what is referred to as “Cuban Motion,” which essentially is a side to side hip roll that occurs when the knee is straightened out. The Rumba then birthed the Mambo, as well as the Cha-Cha, and soon made it’s way into country western dance styles.
