Rumba Flamenca style in Cuba involves a lot of fusion from the Afrocuban and traditional Cuban dance styles. This fusion style is also one of the main characteristics of our rumba flamenca style. Working with Erika was fun and we learned a lot from her. We talked a lot about the fusion between the Cuban dances and flamenco - both as music and dance form. Salsa & Flamenco Dansakademi travelled with 13 members of the dance school to Cuba, including adults and children with a vast arrangement of cultural dance projects. We also made two more promotional videos in this beautiful scenery full of colourful colonial architecture.
