Rumba is arguably the most sensual of all latin dances, combing long leg lines, rolling hip actions, and beautiful arm styling. One of the slower dances, Rumba puts great focus on core strength, balance, and “Cuban motion.” Simple and versatile for the beginner while offering a fun challenge to the competitor, it is no wonder Rumba, with it’s seductive rhythm, is one of the most popular dances we teach.
Jive is the perfect dance for those with energy to burn or for those who wish they did! A variation on the classic swing dances of the early American 20th century, Jive emphasizes lightning fast feet, sharp turns, and playful kicks. There is no better cardio workout in the ballroom dance world than a jive, and many a dancer have found themselves more energized and more fit after learning it. With music that begs you to dance, jive is the best way to dance away your cares.
Paso Doble is the ultimate dance for those looking to escape into the passion and excitement of latin dancing! Created to mimic the bullfights of Spain, Paso Doble is strong, seductive, and confident. Though rarely used socially, Paso Doble still has great functional value to the student, requiring a strong sense of rhythm, sharp turns, and powerful movement across the floor. For the competitor, the boldness and deliberateness of its presentation provides an enormous benefit. Few dances are more stylized…or more fun.
