Beginner Basic Steps

Rumba Beginner Forward-and-Back Basic

The complete beginners lesson teaches the back basic. A great thing to do next is learn some different basic steps, for example forward-and-back basic.

Beginner Variations

Rumba Beginner Slow Turns and Dance Arounds)

Rumba is a slow dance and so I find it well suited to doing slow turns and dance arounds. I think it is a fantastic way to easily add variety to rumba. In general the slow turn or dance around can be awkward in other dances depending on the tempo of the music: making it a more advanced skill for salsa or cha cha.

Rumba Beginner Rotating Forward-and-Back Basic

Rotating the basic step can instantly make the dance less rigid and more fluid. For both the leader and follower simply seeing different views of the dance floor can make it much more fun.

Improver Variations

Rumba Improver Travelling Side Basic

Travelling side basic does not have the same pattern of only stepping away from the centre with one foot: For this reason I think it is an improver basic step. I like to dance it more energetically than the other basic steps.
