Salsa/Mambo History -Palladium Era-Golden Age of Dance PART1

This episode is a 27 minute documentary showing Mambo dancing in New York City at the Palladium in the 1950s. Back then the night began with a free mambo lesson On 2 (hey, just like they do today at some places !) and continued until 4AM. Old footage was displayed of the famous dancers of that era. Their dance style was not quite as precise and polished as today's dancers but it was fun to watch everyone doing their thing on the dance floor.

Currently, the Ballet Hispanico dance company is performing at the Joyce Theater in New York reliving the days at the Palladium. Each dancer was selected to play a certain "character" from the 1950s palladium days: the socialite, the married couple dance instructors, the underage girl, the hot Casanova, plus the neighborhood people and weekly regulars. And "playing the role of the big band at the Palladium is Ray Rodriguez and orchestra Swing Sabroso !"


It was great ! Dancing to "Baila con Swing Sabroso", side by side footage was shown on the screen of the black and white 1950s Palladium dance floor mixed in with the current Crystals dance floor showing identical dance moves and dress. Footage of the band at Crystals was mixed in with their music video.
