During the 1950s, one dance craze dominated the clubs and ballrooms of New York City: The Mambo. Originally from Havana, Cuba, this upbeat form of dance swept through the U.S. years before Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution and left a lasting impact on the nation’s history and culture. Set in Miami Beach, Havana and New York, this fun, upbeat film features a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers, musicians, DJs, club owners and record company moguls – the mamboniks. They’re still hitting the dance floor — in their 70s, 80s and 90s!
