About Mambo Dinamico

Mambo Dinamico’s mission is to promote community and spread cultural awareness through Latin dance.  Our learn-with-no-pressure approach makes our lessons fun and comfortable. You will learn to dance, as well as the culture, history and music to complement your experience.

Under the direction of Norberto “Betto” Herrera, Mambo Dinamico has been spreading the love for salsa and mambo dancing in North Carolina since February 2002. Since its foundation, the company’s main objective has been to welcome people from all cultures into the world of Afro Latin dance.

Mambo Dinamico’s determination for teaching Afro Latin dance has transformed the dance scene in the Southeast.  Being the first mambo/salsa dance company in the South, Mambo Dinamico sets the standard whether they are social dancing, performing, instructing, or producing events. Mambo Dinamico’s impact in the dance scene is very evident, since various studios in the United States and abroad have adopted its instruction methodology.

In 2004, Mambo Dinamico entered a partnership with Carmen’s Cuban Cafe, located in the Heart of the Triangle at 108 Factory Shops Rd, Morrisville, NC.  Ever since, both businesses have worked together with the goal to give their clients an authentic experience of the Latin culture.

Mambo Dinamico is very proud to have trained all of their dancers from their very first basic step to their performance on a world stage.  Mambo Dinamico Dancers have inspired and entertained audiences in local, regional, national and international events, from New York to Florida, North Carolina to Arizona, to all the way around the world in Japan.

Apart from adult lessons, Mambo Dinamico also offers culturally guided educational presentations tailored to schools and businesses. The company has had the privilege to work with all school districts in the area from elementary to high school level. A large number of companies in the Triangle Research Park have used Mambo Dinamico’s services during their business functions and employees’ activities for entertainment and cultural awareness.

Mambo Dinamico has also been honored to work and collaborate with some of the performing arts leaders in the area as The NC Theatre, The NC Symphony, The Carolina Theatre - Durham, Nasher Museum of Arts, American Dance Festival and The International Civil Rights Center and Museum.

Mambo Dinamico Dancers have appeared in news segments for Univision 40 and WRAL. As well as been featured in the weekly television show HOLA-NC. You might also have found them in special appearances and interviews in documentaries like “Spanish Voices.”
Our dancers and students are easily recognized on the dance floor.  They are the ones having a great time, always keeping a friendly and positive attitude towards dancers of all levels while showing them a great time during each dance.
