CLUB DANCES

The Cha-Cha is an American Rhythm and Latin dance, originally known as the Cha-Cha-Cha, was inspired from the Cuban Triple Mambo. The Cuban Triple Mambo originated in Cuba. An English dance teacher, Pierre Lavelle, was visiting Cuba in the early 1950s and saw dancers dancing the triple dance. He brought the triple dance back to Britain and started teaching it as a separate dance. Shortly after the creation of Cha-Cha in Britain, the dance made its way to the United States and has been popular ever since.

The Cha-Cha is a fun and energetic dance that is a great way to get your heart rate up while dancing to popular music. The dance is composed of three fast beats (cha-cha-cha) and two slow beats (rock step).  Some popular music you may hear that are American Rhythm style cha-cha’s are Billy Jean by Michael Jackson or Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars. The Cha-Cha is a great dance to know since cha-cha music is typically played at weddings and by live bands.
