About The Mamboniks
In the 1950s, a group of free-spirited, mostly Jewish dancers from New York City fell in love with a sultry dance from Cuba called the mambo, earning them a nickname: the mamboniks. Set in New York, Miami Beach, the Catskills, and Havana, this little-known story reveals the power of music and dance to bring people together, bridging cultures and communities.
SPECIAL FEATURE: Community introductory mambo class led by Salsannati after the film.
In partnership with the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati’s Silver Circle Society, Create Your Jewish Legacy, and the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center.
