Choreographer's note: For Absolute Beginner dancers you can omit the ¼ turn at the end, for a One Wall dance. For Improver dancers you can try it Contra! This dance was choreographed to the song Bye Bye by David Civera. The other song suggestions came from the many teaches & videos over the years.

Great dance to teach the Mambo steps to Beginners. I teach an AB/Beginner class in The Villages FL and will be teaching this one to my class.
