Mambo

First introduced to the Tropicana Night Club in 1943 Havana by Perez Prado, the Mambo is a Cuban dance which became a craze in Miami in the late 1940s. The breaks on 2 and 4 provide a musical accent differing from previous Cuban dances such as the Rumba. Today, having had the extreme acrobatics removed from the step patterns, the Mambo is mostly found danced by more experienced dancers.
