International Style Latin Cha Cha Cha
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.
