American Style Rhythm Rumba
 
Brief History
The literal translation of Rumba is Party. Rumba is slow, 
sexy, seductive, sensual dance. Danced at 25 - 27 Bars 
or 100 - 108 Beats per minute. Like the Cha Cha Cha, 
Rumba is danced on the second beat of the bar. Unlike 
the Cha Cha Cha there is not a chase but a pause. This 
use allows you to take your hip to the side. Described 
as the dance of love it is easy to see why.
