All the leaders face clockwise, and all the followers face anti-clockwise, one between each leader.

The leader takes the follower's right hand in his left, and does a mambo step, but reversed. The left foot goes back and the right goes forward, but not very far, as the follower will be in the way. The leader's right hand meets the follower's left at the same time as the right foot goes forward. They push against each other, and let go with the leader's right, follower's left. The leader's left keeps hold of the follower's right.

Meanwhile, the follower does normal mambo steps but smaller, as the leader would be in the way of a bigger step.
