Cuban motion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cuban motion is characterized by a rhythmic swaying of the hips caused by the bending and straightening of the knees (though the knees remain "soft" —slightly bent— at all times). It is a style of movement which should be present in Latin American dances, including bachata, mambo, salsa, rhumba, merengue, samba and cha-cha-cha. It tends to be easier to dance and more noticeable when the music is slow.
