Mambo City

Established in 1999

MamboCity was founded by Robert and Jean White in August 1999, they both started dancing in 1992 and gained seven years of dance experience before going on to teach and establishing themselves as instructors/promoters, gaining a reputation for running great events.

Our first Salsa experience, was at a night club in Toronto Canada called Berlins where the Salsa night was hosted by Josie Neglia, it wasn’t until we returned to London that we decided to take lessons in 1992, with the first generation of UK Instructors Xihomara Granados, Nelson Batiste, Ramiro Zapata and Zina. We were first introduced to cross body style dancing by Pedro Gomez and have since gone on to learn different styles from such salsa luminaries as Eddie Torres, Nelson Flores (Descarga Latina), Tomas Guerrero (SantoRico), Frankie Martínez and many others. Owing to these influences, we have experienced styles ranging from Columbian and Cuban Salsa, to the Cross Body styles “On 1″ / “On 2″ and Cha Cha Cha.

They went on to run a number of festivals around the UK and abroad.
