A mambo cha-cha-cha is a combination of a mambo and a cha-cha-cha (also known simply as a cha-cha). A mambo is a two count move: step forward on the ball of your lead foot, then shift your weight and hips backwards onto the back foot. It's easy once you've seen it done.

This move is done in 4 counts:
