WHAT IS CUMBIA
Cumbia is another popular dance at Latin night clubs. It is an energetic dance that originated primarily in Mexico, Colombia, and Panama, Cumbia which started as a courtship dance practiced among the African population, which was later mixed with European instruments and musical characteristics. Moves involve a lot of momentum and energy from each partner. Latin Clubs play at least 20% Cumbia. You don't have to sit and watch, now you will be able to dance!
