Spicy Mambo Dance Lessons in Our Warren Studio

Mambo History and Characteristics

No other dance from south of the U.S. border has ever attained the instantaneous popularity than the zestful Mambo did when it was first introduced from Latin America. The extent of the Mambo’s reach can be observed by the widespread use of its rhythm by Tin Pan Alley. Love ballads were written to a slow Mambo beat, novelty songs to a fast Mambo beat, and rock ‘n’ roll numbers were tailored to the tempo. Across the nation, dancers who had never progressed beyond the Foxtrot and Waltz were clamoring for Mambo instruction.

The popularity of the Mambo was almost entirely the work of Cuban bandleader Perez Prado. During the early 1930s, Latin-style dance bands became increasingly popular with American audiences and filled the airwaves with Rumbas, Sambas, and Tangos. Then, in the early ’50s, Prado recorded the song, “Mambo Jambo,” and the fun was on.

The Mambo can be danced according to the individual dancer’s temperament. Conservative dancers can stay in a closed position, while the more daring can perform steps that break apart and completely separate themselves from each other. 

Our Mambo dance instructors will help you learn everything from the basic steps for beginners to the more advanced styles for those looking to enter dance competitions.
