About this class

Join Gemma and her partner Oleg Storozhuk for this exciting and dynamic Rumba workshop aimed at Medallist and Pro-Am dancers.

You might have heard or seen people talking about competitive routines that are rooted in ‘basic’ actions, but have struggled to recognise the steps you know.  We’ll show you how!

During the workshop, we will show you a routine that includes many of the ‘basic’ figures you will already know from your classes and competitions.  We’ll then take each figure, and explain how you can develop it using your understanding of connection, timing and musicality, into an open choreography that is both fun and challenging!

Throughout the class we’ll be working on principles of leading and following, and showing you different Rumba timings you can use, as well as new interpretations of the syllabus figures.

This class is aimed at those who are confident with Bronze level and above steps, as fundamental knowledge of Rumba time and steps will already be assumed.
