Waltz – In the late 1700’s, the Waltz appeared as a fashionable dance in Bohemia, Austria, Bavaria and other parts of Europe. Danced in 3/4 timing, the dancers whirl around the floor enjoying the thrill of the Waltz movement.
Rumba – African in origin, the Rumba was originally a courtship, marriage, and street dance. The Rumba met some opposition from high society because of the suggestive body and hip movements. The characteristic feature is to take each step without initially placing the weight on that step. Steps are made with a slightly bent knee which, when straightened, causes the hips to sway from side to side. This hip swaying has come to be known as Cuban Motion.
