Cha Cha Dance Lessons Houston
A DESCRIPTION: The Cha Cha is an exciting, syncopated, Latin dance, which originated in the 1950s as a slowed down Mambo, the Cha Cha gathers its personality, character, rhythm, basis, and charm from two major dance sources. It is a derivation of the Mambo through its Latin music, and it is also a stepchild of the Swing, as it is danced to a 1-2-3 step rhythm. The Cha Cha gets its name and character from its distinct repetitive foot rhythm.
Cha Cha is one of 8 country western dances sanctioned by the UCWDC (United Country Western Dance Council) who describes Cha Cha as a "stationary dance with intersecting patterns performed with Cuban motion, emphasizing the first beat of each measure"
