a community built on dance


Rumbao Latin Dance Company represents the vision of five Charlotte Latin dancers to provide a fusion of fun and technique for Salsa Dancing. Rumbao combines two key aspects of salsa dance to provide the best performance and instruction possible. Our emphasis is on Rumba and the Tumbao, the percussive beat in salsa music that On2 dancing follows. Rumba implies a party aspect where people get together and have fun. Together the words make Rumbao

We believe, no matter the rhythm that life plays for you, always take time to find the beat of the Tumbao and get your rumba on!

Rumbao was formed in March 2013. Each dancer enjoys creative freedom and brings unique talents to the group following an On2 New York Style. Rumbao has been able to present beautiful choreographies full of sabor and has quickly made a mark in the southeast. In addition to being passionate Salseros, Rumbao dancers are also proud Charlotteans and are committed to the continued growth of salsa in their hometown.

Rumbao offers performance and instruction specializing in, but not limited to, salsa dance.
We are also knowledgeable and experienced in Cha-Cha, Merengue, Bachata and Brazilian Samba.
