The word "rumba" comes from the verb "rumbear" which means going to parties, dancing, and having a good time.

There are two sources of the dance: one Spanish and the other African. Although the main growth was in Cuba, there were similar dance developments which took place in other Caribbean island and in Latin America generally.

American Rumba was modified from a popular Cuban "Bolero-Son". Today, rumba is a sassy, smooth, and sensual latin-style dance in which the hips are active and always moving in "cuban motion".
