      2019 ∙ Documentary ∙ 90 minutes ∙ English, Spanish ∙ Lex Gillespie

      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.

      In partnership with Jewish Federation of Cincinnati – Silver Circle Society and Create Your Jewish Legacy.

      Pre-event reception and tickets available for Create Your Jewish Legacy and Jewish Federation Silver Circle donors. Please contact Reagan Kuhn, 513.985.1526, for information and to RSVP.
