CUMBIA CLASSES -taught by Juan Garcia (No classes currently offered)
Cumbia is a Latin dance done at Salsa clubs and venues where the music has Mexican and Columbian influences. Along with Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, and Cha Cha, Cumbia rounds out the Latin Club dancer’s repertoire and will keep them in high demand all night. Cumbia shares the same steps, patterns, and rhythm as Street-Style Salsa, only the styling is a little different. Cumbia has a distinctive lilt and grounded look which hint at its roots as a folk dance. (from https://mayihavethisdance.com/dance-descriptions/cumbia)
