About Cumbia Dance

The cumbia is the national dance of Colombia.

It was originally a courtship dance influenced by European, African and indigenous cultures.

The dance is usually accompanied by a specific ensemble of musicians.

Cumbia’s lively, rhythmic sounds are both fun and energizing, promising to bring a lift to your mood.

In fact, cumbia music serves as the inspiration for much of the popular music in Colombia today.
