Chicago’s main source for Latin dance lessons.
You can dance and we can show you how with our proven system of success
Welcome to your new favorite source for Latin Dance Lessons in Chicago!
Mayambo is new, but the roots run deep in the Chicago Latin dance scene. Mayambo was founded by Del Dominguez (the previous co-founder of the Mixed Motion Art Dance Academy), a 20 year, 4-time champion Salsa veteran.
We offer group classes and private lessons that cater to all levels and offer something for every aspiring Afro-Latin dance student.
There are also performance opportunities via our popular performance classes as well as proper dance teams for the serious student.
For me, working with Del is a genuine exchange of the joy of dance. He focuses on getting you seriously prepared for your dance journey, always pushing you to reach for your full potential…the teaching style reflects his character, caring about his students both as dancers and as people. He reminds you to never take yourself too seriously, and most importantly, he makes the whole learning process fun! It’s a pleasure to learn from Del ❤️
Del once told me that I would give up on me before he gave up on me, and he was right! Del is so patient. I’m not the quickest learner or the best dancer, but he’s very attuned to the strengths and weaknesses of his students. Because of that, my skills have improved. He’s a very observant instructor. He’s an awesome dancer. And he’s very passionate about Salsa/Mambo. If you’re intimidated by the thought of privates, as I was, don’t be!
