This website celebrates dancers of Palladium Era Mambo who created and nurtured mambo dancing in 1950s New York. Included here are short biographies outlining the dance careers of elite amateur and professional mambo dancers who performed at the Palladium. All of these dancers also danced and often performed at other venues throughout New York; some toured the country; and a few took their mambo acts on international tours. All began their careers as social mambo dancers on the floor of the Palladium and other iconic New York Latin dance halls.
Each biography on this website is a work in progress, open to revision and expansion. If you danced at the Palladium or have any information about any of the dancers listed here (or Palladium dancers not yet included), I would love to hear from you! Please contact me to share your memories so that I can continue to expand this resource.
