Monday Ballroom Class Learns Mambo Bump and Shadow Tango

Monday Ballroom Class 11 am was held at the Academy of Dance and Fine Arts in Little River SC and we studied the Mambo Bump and ValenTango Roll to Shadow Rocks. 

The Academy is a established dance school that Carolina Dance Partners has been associated with for many years.  We had to relocate because the JB Floyd Community Center was refinishing their floors.

This group likes to Salsa so we learned how to dance the Side Breaks and then modified those into the Mambo Bumps, a great pattern, lots of fun, and was used in Disco Dancing – You remember? – do the Bump! 

About half way through the lesson I changed the subject to Tango  – the Roll to Shadow Rocks – a bit of a fancy step from the Arthur Murray playbook. As we progressed with the pattern we added some Flamenco Styling.
