The Cha Cha is an offshoot of the Mambo which became popular in Cuba in 1954. The character of this dance is cheeky and vibrant with a sense of fun. The Cha Cha is danced at about 120 beats per minute. The steps are taken on the beats, with a strong hip movement as the knee straightens on the half beats in between. The weight is kept well forward, with forward steps taken toe-flat, and it is danced with minimal upper-torso movement. We wanted to share this amazing choreography with you in today’s video, that strongly shows the character of the dance. We hope you love it as much as we do!
