Mambo Dance Instruction DVDs
More than a dance, it's an addiction!
The fusion of Swing and Cuban music produced this fascinating rhythm and in turn created a new sensational dance. The Mambo could not have been conceived earlier since up until that time Cuba and American Jazz still were not wedded. The Victor records of Anselmo Sacaras entitled "Mambo" in 1944 were probably the beginning and since then other Latin American band leaders such as Tito Rodriquez, Pupi Campo, Tito Puente, Perez Pardo, Machito, and Xavier Cugat have achieved styling of their own and furthered the Mambo craze. The Mambo was originally played as any Rumba with a riff ending. It may be described as a riff or a Rumba with emphasis on the fourth beat in 4/4 time. Originally played with some musicians in 2/4 time with a break or emphasis on 2 and 4. Native Cubans or dancers without any training would break on any beat. The majority of present day Salsa dancers do traditional Mambo patterns.
I think it is an excellent method of learning how to dance
Thank you. I have been learning a lot on my own with your DVDS. I think it is an excellent method of learning how to dance and much cheaper. My friend from LaCrosse, WI bought me the Night Club 2Step and I was very impressed.

Yours is far and away the best
We have been using your beginning cha cha DVD and we love it!! Your directions, both visual and verbal, are clear and easy to follow plus you give very good directions on how-to-lead-the-steps for the men. I've watched other how-to-dance videos from our local library and yours is far and away the best. You demonstrate lots of steps for the dance whereas the others only gave the basic plus only 3-4 other moves... boring! Love your variety! C. T. More Testimonials
