Learn Salsa / Mambo

Salsa and mambo are very closely related and studying them together is great.  Salsa dancing originated in New York in the mid-1970s. It evolved from earlier dance forms such as Cha Cha Cha and Mambo which were popular in New York, and incorporated elements of Swing dancing and Hustle.   

"What is the difference between the Salsa and the Mambo?"  Not to be too sticky but the simple answer is that the Salsa can break (the main step)  on either count 1or 3, or count 2 if doing the "New York" style, while Mambo must break on count 2.  The basic moves are virtually the same patterns in both dances up until the immediate post-beginner stage, where they begin to look different in appearance.  The Mambo often looks more like ballroom dancing, with proper dance frame, straight spines, and Latin Motion.  

Costs  is $36 for the 4 week series payable to Dance on Air.  reserve and pay 4 days early for a 10% discount.

Shoes   PLEASE bring dancing shoes or you will dance in your socks. No outside street shoes allowed on the floor.  Suede-soled shoes or other similar non-marking indoor shoes are fine. 

Please RSVP for all the sessions so we can attempt to maintain balance or better yet, grab a partner (and bring two friends)!!  Please keep your RSVPs up to date, I'm marking out the no shows...
