Recap of Mr. Mambo’s DC WildLife Salsa Bachata Social w/Pics & Videos

Outside of Halloween, Theme Parties don’t usually translate well at Mr. Mambo’s.  People come to Mr. Mambo’s with the high expectation of getting their democratic and Fiercely MERITOCRATIC Salsa Bachata Dance On and they don’t want to bother with sartorial concerns like a certain color outfit or dressing in costume.  They figure they going to sweat it out anyway so why bother.  But at Mr. Mambo’s Wildlife Social Sat April 11, a sizable number of dancers actually ROCKED THE THEME ATTIRE- Animal Print!  I was so proud that the dancers played along with the them- THANK YOU!

From a party perspective, Mr. Mambo’s was WILD and not just because of the Animal Print! The Salsa Dance Floor was HOPPING and the Bachata Dance Floor was En FUEGO! Thank you to ALL who came and represented on the Dancefloor AND in Animal Print!



The evening started with Salsa and Bachata Workshops with about 55 students total.  The Bachata Workshop was taught by Juan Aristy and the level of instruction was geared for ALL LEVELS.  Tommy Smith taught the Totally Beginners Salsa ON1 Workshop.  Psyon Scott taught the always challenging Salsa ON2 Workshop.  And Luis Artieda taught his first Mr. Mambo’s Workshop Salsa ON1 and received positive feedback which means he will be BACK!

The DJs OUTDID Themselves spinning what the dancers wanted to hear and jams that compelled you to Stay Locked Down on the Dancefloor!  DJ Neo & DJ Tico more than satisfied the Salseros with DELIGHTFUL Salsa, Mambo, and Cha Cha Cha! DJ Yulio Tore THE ROOF OFF of the Bachata Invasion and kept the Walls Sweating way after 2am!
