Rhumba is one of those shaky latin dances with the basic step to trace a box. Its
Slow-------QuickQuick (1, L) (2,3, RL) | | (5,6,LR) (4, R) QuickQuick-------Slow
The instruction video in the link above show a different way of Rhumba but above one is what I learned. Its more Waltiz and less shaky ;). The
Waltz is the founding father (or mother) of ballroom dances. The basic step is a box step with uniform beats no quickies like rumba:
Slow-------SlowSlow (1, L) (2,3, RL) | | (5,6,LR) (4, R) SlowSlow-------Slow
Remember to hold the Women at shoulder blade and look in eyes. Smiles make dacing fun :). Waltz is a romantic slow moving progressional dance. Progressional implies that you more with your partner through the dance floor (mostly in counterlclockwise way).
Thats all for Dance-101 as of now :).
