    Not really. Gay is a word that was and remains commonly used throughout the English-speaking world. Both in its previous meaning and in its present meaning. Mambo in the 50s was a phenomenon known throughout the USA and to a lesser extent throughout the world. Mambo in its present meaning - i.e. dancing contemporary on 2 salsa to salsa dura music - is a concept unknown outside the closed world of the salsa scene.

    It's not so much the timing as the moves and styling that differentiate old school mambo (dancing) from new school salsa (dancing). On saying that, the latter has definitely descended from the former, and some dancers have more mambo (as in old school mambo) flavour than others.

    It's always the music. music defines what and how we should dance, with of course our own "style "..

    Salsa was not in his wheel house and I have commented on this vid before .He is essentially doing a performance,, nuf said

    Modern mambo is a closer term to the old , IF one incorporates foundation steps...

    That doesn't actually mean what I want to say. Let me try again.

    Gay is a word that was commonly used throughout the English-speaking world in its previous meaning, and is now commonly used in its present meaning.

    We need some women's names in there. Timberamayor shouldn't be a "maestro". Do we have any maestra suggestions? :)

    Currently teaching Mark Antony in my Ancient History class and using the opportunity to make horrendously bad jokes and correlations :p (which the students are totally used to from me :)) I've explained, using a certain clip, how immensely popular the Roman triumvir was in New York.

    I suspect the students are convinced this is one Roman I have a bit of a crush on... :D
