History of Mambo Dancing

The Mambo dance comes from a diverse background, with influence from a variety of different countries and cultures. It is a unique dance in the sense that is both a dance and a music style. It originated in Cuba in the 1930s, pulling similar steps and rhythms from the Rumba and related dances. The Mambo was first recognized as a Rumba dance with an improvised riff at the ending. This developed into its own dance, especially with the later combination of American jazz and Cuban rhythms. Mambo is also often danced to highly percussive music, using cowbells and maracas. This helps establish a solid beat and variety of rhythms. The basic steps of the Mambo are based in a simple forward and backward movement. These rock steps and slide steps are couple with sharp kicks of the feet for a spicy flare. This riveting technique caught hold in Harlem, New York in the early 1950s and never stopped growing. Some called in a “Mambo fever” that has taken over the ballroom even still today. Now it’s your turn to learn what the craze is about!

The Mambo is fantastic form of exercise and expression. Dancing is a great way to encourage a healthy and balanced lifestyle. With the natural stresses of life, dance is an opportunity to unwind, let loose, and enjoy the day. We offer a variety of dances to fit your needs and help you accomplish your dancing goals. With a long list of different dances to choose from, we can help you find the right one.
