International Latin Cha Cha Cha
Brief Description
Cha Cha Cha is a cheeky, Flirtatious, fun Latin dance. 
This is reflected in the music too. With it's 4/4 timing, 
30 - 32 Bars or 120 - 128 Beats per Minute. It appears 
much faster than the Rumba. This is because of the 
split beat, Chasse. With the cheeky steps and the 
infectious music, it won't be long before your hips 
start moving. You can't help but enjoy Cha Cha Cha. 
The Cha Cha is usually one of the first latin dances 
a beginner learns and is a social favourite. Cha Cha 
music originated from Cuba and has a strong easily 
recognised rhythm. The Cha Cha arrived from the 
US about 1962 and proved to be tremendously 
popular straight away.
