Mambo Mambo & Mambo No 5



Mambo No 5 must be one of the best known songs by Lou Bega. There are about 100 dances choreographed to this song. I have selected 2 dances below that looks interesting.

Let's combine the 2 dances:-
1. Dance 7 walls of the first dance ,Mambo Mambo. You will be facing 9 0' clock
Turn to 12' 0 clock . There is a break in the music
2. Continue with the 2nd dance, Mambo no. 5 until the end of the song
Note: for wall 8, you will be dancing according to the lyrics of the song. Listen!
