Dance brings people together, and Colombian cumbia brings out all the emotions. Yesterday it was Bryant Park Dance Party: Cumbia night at the weekly dance Party in Bryant Park, NYC. Cumbia originated in coastal Colombia and is hot dance full of rhythm and hip motions.
It was marvelous to see people of all ethnicities, in diverse NYC, basking in the culture of Colombia. Two Colombian dancers taught the crownd the cumbia moves then they performed inside of a human circle. Later on, people freestyled and showed their dance moves (see video).
Next Wednesday is disco night, then Mexican night will follow.
