The earliest forms of Rhumba had Afro Cuban origins, but the popular social styles we know today evolved in America in the 1920's and 1930's.
There are several forms of Rhumba, the most popular are Box and Bolero. At DanceFix we teach mainly the Freestyle Box Rhumba.
Rhumba is often called the 'dance of love' and has a sultry, seductive personality with smooth hip movements and a heavy walking action.
The Rhumba is one of the few dances suited to slow and romantic melodies and ballads and is perfect for small dance floors.
