History of Rumba Dancing

Rumba is a dance style with a very diverse background. It is the combination of several cultures, each with their own spices and flares. The word itself, “rumba,” comes from the Cuban word “to party.” That alone speaks to the fun and excitement behind this form of expression. It first began developing in the 1800s in poor areas of Cuba, branching out into three main styles: yambu, Columbia, guaguanco. These styles of dance were later brought to America at the beginning of the 1900s. Around 1920, thanks to the increasing popularity of Afro-Cuban music style and American big band tunes, rumba began to really take hold. Sometimes spelled “rhumba,” this dance gain official recognition in 1930 when it was involved in the Savory Ballroom. Stemming from this event, there are now two recognized forms of ballroom rumba: American style and International style. This passionate and engaging dance has taken hold all across the world. Rumba is an integrated part of several cultures, including Spain, Colombia, and Africa. Come learn Rumba with us today at our Danbury dance studio and experience the excitement of Rumba!
