Basic Rumba for Kids

Basic Rumba for Kids online video thumbnail

In this video we’ll be taking you through some basic Rumba steps for the kids (although adults can certainly give it a go too!)

Our classes are broken down into easy to follow sections that build up to a small routine for the kids to practice.

The focus is on the kids having fun whilst learning to dance.

The Dance – Rumba

For this lesson Antony & Imogen show you some basic Rumba steps adapted for kids.

You dance Rumba on the second beat of the music. Generally you will hold the first beat once you start dancing, but we’ll have a small side step to start on the one.

We start off with an Alternative Basic. This move involves two weight changes on the spot, before a side step with a hold.

The next step we’ll look at is the New Yorks, but danced as a solo movement.

Finally we’ll add in some solo Spot Turns.

The Basic Rumba For Kids Music

The music we have chosen for our Kid’s Rumba class is Beautiful Woman by Ramin feat. Staffan Carlén:
