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 usually don't write after we receive orders, but I was so impressed I had to let you know. We ordered our videos on Saturday and they were in our mail box on Monday. While the post office gets some credit, you obviously packed and shipped them as soon as you got the order, literally! I would be hard pressed to drive from NC to NH in the time it took the order to get here. Very impressive! A. & T. S. - Londonderry, NH More Testimonials
