Roberta Kulik will teach a rumba dance workshop at 11 a.m., Thursday, June 12, at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave.
Often called the dance of love, Afro-Cuban and ballroom are the two main types of rumba dance. At the beginning of the 20th century, the ballroom rumba was introduced into American dance salons and was characterized by its high tempos – nearly twice as fast as the modern ballroom rumba.
The version commonly danced in the United States features box-like basic figures. Kulik will teach participants user-friendly, basic rumba choreography.
The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.
The workshop is free and open to the public. For more information call 708-386-4040.
