The Beat: Rumba, Salsa and Go-go (Day 2)
Updated: Apr 29, 2019
We started our day at the library and left the library around 9:30 to be transported to the Fitness Snob studio. After we arrived at the Fitness Snob studio, we learned the historical context around the Rumba, Salsa, and Go-go dances. Then it was our turn to learn from the music teacher, Mr. Ricardo and the dance teacher Ms. Kendra. The clave is the tempo in the dances. There are three different types of claves. The first one goes off with 2, 3. The second one is 3, 2. The last one can be both 2, 3 and 3, 2. The dances are an easy 3 step. We added another instrument, the small bongos. With the bongos, you need a rhythm that's not too fast to go along with the clave. The best way to describe a clave is like two sticks hitting against each other. The way to hold a clave is by holding the stick with your left hand with pressure, and hold the second stick with your right hand.
We learned the basic step of Rumba, Salsa and Go-go and then we choreographed a dance routine comibining all from the African and Latino Diaspora.
Later that day, we returned to the library and created a vision folder of what we wanted to achieve for the rest of the year. We used file folders for our vision folders and went through magazines to find and cut out pictures to represent a goal we want to achieve.
Once done with our vision folders we made a self care scrub. Here's how to make salt and sugar scrubs:
