Afro-Cuban dance and rhythms stem from the slaves who were brought to Cuba, mainly from West Africa, who managed to keep their traditions alive through dance, music and song. Strong, expressive and energetic, this style of dance is characterised by full-body movements with shoulder and chest undulations, repetitive step patterns and bold but fluid moves. Afro-Cuban music is poly-rhythmic and driven by drums, voice and percussion. Many of the best-known dances and music reflects the type of work that the African slaves did when they were brought to Cuba, such as cutting sugar cane, whilst others are characterised by traditional festive dances and music which remain faithful to their original roots. This is a 6-week course, but you can also join on a drop-in weekly basis.
Timba is a Cuban genre of music based on popular Cuban music such as salsa, with influences from jazz, R&B and Afro-Cuban folkloric music. Timba rhythm sections differ from their salsa counterparts because timba emphasizes the bass drum which is not used in salsa bands.
