Description

An exciting, syncopated Latin dance which originated in the 1950s as a slowed-down Mambo. The Cha Cha gets its name and character from its distinct repetitive foot rhythm. It’s fun, energetic, sexy and flirtatious, and is easily distinguished from other dances by its addictive “Step, Step, Cha Cha Cha” timing.
