Cha Cha

 

The Cha Cha has its origins in Cuba and was introduced in England and North America in the early 1950's.


It evolved as a hybrid of Mambo and Swing with a double step (the cha-cha) added into the middle of the basic Mambo pattern.

 

The Cha Cha has a fun, cheeky personality and is danced to a variety of upbeat pop, dance and Latin music.

 

It is full of energy and characterized by sharp, staccato body movements and hip motion.

 

Cha Cha can be danced compactly on small dance floors to most music with a strong and constant beat but shines when danced to slightly slower music with an emphasized syncopated rhythm.


You can try Cha Cha in our classic latin group classes .
