Note: When doing this dance, or other Rhumba type dances the basic timing is Quick (1) Quick (2) Slow (3,4), The slow steps are those followed by the holds, For styling on these steps, try doing a slow weight change using the two counts to complete the step, This will help to give your Rhumba a more fluid quality and helps prevent any tendency to bounce.
