Through this mix of musical brilliance, passionate dancers and alike audience the Mambo Craze was born. Get ready for this time travel to dance the mambo like in the 50s.</p>
    <h2 class="sub-title">The Mambo Craze</h2>
    <p>Palladium took a big part of the nights in New York City. Every night, big names of Latin music like Celia Cruz, Arsenio Rodriguez, Dámaso Perez Prado passed through the palladium’s stage. It didn’t take long for the mambo to become trending. This place catches the attention of celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, who used to visit the Palladium often. But Palladium’s success is largely due to the city’s professional dancers, and the enthusiasm of amateur dancers who each night improved their skills and created the foundation for what we now know as a social salsa dance.</p>
    <h2 class="sub-title">The Big Three</h2>
    <p>They were a key to Palladium becoming an important reference for salsa history and emerging New York clubs. “Machito and his Afro-Cubans” was the first orchestra at the Palladium. Mario Bauzá founded this Orchestra in 1941, and Machito was the face of the project. They begin to mix Jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms and European instruments, becoming the pioneering and most respected orchestra of the time. When Palladium begins to be the center of the Night, they needed other Bands with the Machito Level.</p>
    <h2 class="sub-title">The Dance contribution to salsa history</h2>
    <p>Mambo, Chachacha, and pachanga were the favorite rhythms to dance every night. The Mambo was the star of the night and the one that professionals preferred to demonstrate their skills. The Cha-cha-cha was introduced thanks to Dumas Perez Prado with his hit …, and it was vital to keep the Latin dance afloat. This was the preferred rhythm of young people and beginners because it was slower and more romantic. And the pachanga could not be left behind, It was a very energetic and unbridled rhythm for both musicians and dancers. In addition to being used recurrently in films of the time.</p>
    <p>The dance was an important part of the Mambo experience at the Palladium. One of the biggest motivations for going every week was to take dance classes and watch dance performances. Many professional dancers emerged in this place. One of the first teams were Milly Denay and Pedro Aguilar, as well known as the Cuban Pete. They used to be the nighttime attraction performing great music performances and elaborate shows. Milly Denay developed a great name as a dancer by being the female lead solo dancer in Dámaso Perez Prado’s orchestra.</p>

Augie and Margo included stunts, difficult turns, jumps and synchronized partner work to a very high level.</p>
    <h2 class="sub-title">The Legacy to Salsa history</h2>
    <p>At Palladium, music, and dance began to build the foundation for salsa history. The Big 3 orchestras pushed other orchestras to push the limits of creativity. They motivated orchestras such as the Eddie Palmieri Orchestra, an important and virtuous pianist, which was important for the construction of what we would know in the 70s as salsa. Although Afro-Cuban rhythms existed long before palladium, this place was important to perfect and spread them. But the biggest contribution was the creation and introduction of different dance styles.</p>

They began to build basic movements to facilitate their dissemination. Today we continue to interpret some of these movements in the “salsa on 2” style. Dance style and legacy that the Palladium has left us. Today it has been spread and is still under constant construction thanks to great masters such as Eddye Torres. As well known as the timpani king, Eddye has taught hundreds of dancers for over 40 decades. Among the most recognized interpreters of this style are Adolfo Indacochea, Eddye Torres Jr, and Wilton Beltre.</p>
