Cumbia is a mid-tempo social dance that is immensely popular across Latin America. Defined by the catch and release of the couples hands, slightly shuffled steps, and the sway of hips accompanied by turns and spins.
This combination makes for a dance that is sensual, flavourful, and yet relaxed. It is technically simple and fun to dance, which allows you to focus on enjoying your company and the music, without having to worry about executing complicated steps.
The Mexican Guaracha as a dancing expression is a sub genre of the Cumbia, better known as Guaracha Sonidera or Guaracha Tibiri.
It's a popular dance in Mexico and a street or urban dance commonly danced on kiosks, parks and Mexican parties, where sonideros (Cumbia Dj's) play this music.
Guaracha mixes some elements from the Colombian Salsa, Cumbia and Mambo, making this dance fun and at the same time challenging.
The footwork is dynamic and quick with its own technique and syllabus.
The Guaracha class will focus on the footwork technique and the mexican style of dancing it.
