History of Mambo and Salsa - Palladium Era

Posted on about 10 years ago

NJN, a local public television station, hosted a documentary in its Imagenes Series called "Golden Age of Dance". It aired on Thursday, April 17, 2008 at 6:30 pm

If you ever wanted to know how Salsa and Mambo got so popular, now you can watch a 27-minute documentary that focuses on the Palladium Ballroom Era (1950's) in New York City.

This episode focuses on all aspects of Mambo/Salsa music around the 1950's in New York City. In fact at the end of the video, a typical Palladium night is recreated along with dancers, instructors, performers and a big-band Orchestra.

So grab a comfortable chair and a drink and watch this whole Mambo documentary. It is worth it!!! It mentions famous Salsa dancers, musicians and instructors.


"Golden Era of Dance" - Part 1.

I had to split the video into 3 parts. Part 2 and Part 3 can be found in this article in ScarletMambo.com
