Mambo is a mix of Spanish and African music created in Cuba in the late 30’s with dance movements added in the mid-40’s. The 1950’s saw the peak of Mambo’s popularity, especially in the USA. Nowadays, this dance is also known as ‘Salsa on 2’. It has a more distinct feel and look about it than the basic but sultrier and more relaxed Salsa. Mambo is an impressive Latin dance that encourages confidence and poise and generates great presence on the dance floor. Due to the precise footwork and timing, Mambo is very structured and easy to learn. Thus it can be danced to a wide range of music including Salsa, Top 40’s and R&B.
