Dancing with Crystal: Rumba
This is my favorite dance, woohooo! Anyone who doesn't know what the Rumba is. That is a Latin American dance which was mainly grown in Cuba. Rumba is the spirit and soul of Latin American music and dance. The fascinating rhythms and bodily expressions make the Rumba one of the most popular ballroom dances. I love Rumba because of its characteristics. It's slow, sensuous and romantic with many flirtations of the lady with her partner then immediately reject him. She teases her partner and run away right after the man addicts to her. She gives him the feeling of "I love you"- "No, I hate you" at the same time. What a game of emotion! In rumba, the spotlight focus on the lady and in particular her rhythmic body action and sexuality. The slower the music is, the better body action she needs to create. That's the most difficult part of the dance. That's also the reason why I love so much this sensual and romantic dance. Every time on the dance floor, when it comes to Rumba music I can feel every single cell in my body wants to move. How strange! Anyway, this is another piece of my dancing with my new partner for our coming- up coming competition. We have just done 5 dances, and present to you our first dance: The RUMBA!
