Learn some traditional rumba, with steps and body movement which can be incorporated into your salsa dancing

In this collection of 3 online classes discover about the rumba clave (which is different from the son clave), the chekeré, and the guanguanco conga rhythms. Also how rumba dancing is deeply connected to these rhythms. You will learn body movement which can be used throughout your salsa dancing, but also traditional rumba steps which can be used within salsa songs at appropriate moments when the song has a rumba feel to it.

Different aspects of the music are clearly explained with examples and exercises to help you understand the music better, and to make your dancing more musical. Hopefully it will also heighten your enjoyment of listening to salsa as well.
