About This Category
Cuban dances are colorful and lively. The passionate sensual movements are tantalizing and provide delight to dancers and spectators. Origins are Spanish and African settlers of the island. Over the years Cubans have made these dances all their own. Cuban dancing includes a variety of energetic styles such as Rumba, Cuban Salsa, Afro Cuban, Congas, and El Juego de Mani.
Much of Cuba’s population is of African descent and the dances have African influence. The Rhumba is an Afro-Cuban dance and also a ballroom style dance. The ballroom dance is performed in international competitions. The Mamba is spinoff of the Rumba.
The Tango - The Tango has enjoyed popularity in different parts of the world but it has its roots in Cuba. The Tango was derived from the traditional Cuban dance called the Habanera.
The Cuban Salsa dance was created by Spanish-speaking people from the Caribbean. Salsa dancing mixes African and European dance. Salsa is usually performed by couples or in groups with partner exchanging and can include improvising. “Salsa" means sauce in Spanish.
El Juego de Maní translates to “peanut butter game”, because of the smooth and slippery style. This dance was imported to Cuba by the African slaves with origins in Kongo-Angola culture. Dance moves include low kicks, sweeps, head butts, elbows, forearms, and knees.
The Conga is a popular Cuban dance that has become popular worldwide. Cubans still seem to perform this one the best and tourists can learn at the many nightclubs that have sprung up in Cuba.
