Rumba dance is the original South African Afro-Brazilian dance. Rumba is a traditional South African dance that originated in south east Africa. Rumba is not a dance for the casual dance enthusiast and is generally not used at formal South African parties. Dance Rumba is made up of three forms: 1) the basic form in which you try and keep moving while singing, dancing, or clapping. 2) the rumba which uses the basic form, in which you follow a simple rumba rhythm, with the first step of each word being a quick step of the body, the second step being the same, and the third step being a much longer step of the body. 3) the rumba variation, which incorporates more than one word into a single movement, and with the third and fourth steps of the rumba using a bit of a leap/walk and step on your toes.
