A deep dive into history

Rumba is the slowest dance style out of all the Latin ballroom. The first appearances of Rumba was in Cuba in the early 1920s. These rhythms were remembered by the earliest African people transported unwillingly to Cuba. The Rumba requires a good sense of rhythm and also persistence to master the technical niceties which tend to be skipped by less skilled dancers. These niceties come as a result of good balance and coordinated movement of the ankles, knees and hips. Continual training will enable dancers to perform the Rumba in unison.
