No other dance has achieved as much popularity as the Mambo when it was first introduced. In 1947, Perez Prado performed with his Latin orchestra and wowed New Yorkers at the Palladium Ballroom in Manhattan with his new Mambo composition “Mambo No. 5”.
The infectious melody quickly swept across the country, becoming an American pop standard and fueling the Mambo craze in full swing! Across the country, dancers who had never gone beyond Foxtrot and Waltz clamored to learn Mambo.
Mambo has been around for centuries and is still as popular today as it was then. Whether you’re a Tango fan or a Rumba lover, you’ll love learning this exhilarating new dance. Sign up for Mambo lessons now!
