Learn Rumba Basic Steps
The basic step when you start to learn Rumba is the box step. It starts out with the man and woman facing each other. The man’s left hand holds the woman’s right hand and his right hand is lightly positioned underneath the woman’s shoulder blade. The woman’s left hand rests on the man’s shoulder or back. First, the man takes a step forward with the left foot, and then a side step to the right, then the left foot steps back beside the right foot. Now, the right foot takes a step back, the left foot steps to the side and then the right foot, gets back in position beside the left foot. The partner mirrors these steps.
