Afro Cuban

Afro-Cuban dance, like many other Latin dances, has a driving beat and makes you move your body rhythmically. It has become popular all over the United States and also in Europe. There are many schools and organizations that offer classes and fiestas where you can show off your skills.

The Afro-Cuban dance was originally developed with the intermixing of the African dance of the slaves and the flamenco of the Spanish masters. Both dance forms are enthusiastic and require the participants to move their bodies vigorously.

Cubans have been coming to the United States for many years. Since 1959 when Fidel Castro took power in Cuba, the stream turned into a river. As these Cubans arrived, KET.org notes that these immigrants introduced part of their culture, including the Afro-Cuban dance, into the mainstream of American life.
