The name of this dance was originally used in Cuba to denote any party, and later all secular styles of Cuban music. Today it mostly refers to the modern style of Latin Ballroom dance, at times using the alternative spelling “Rhumba”. Though the word Rumba has come to denote much less the ways in which rumba can be danced seem to be ever expanding. The Rumba is danced in two recognized styles around the world – the American and the International – both competitively and socially, but it goes far beyond that. The Rumba is as versatile as the dancer, becoming as complex or as simple as is necessary when danced to its famous slow-quick-quick (quick-quick-slow) beat. This makes learning the Rumba satisfying for the inexperience and experienced alike.
