How to do the Cha Cha Dance Step
Julian walks us through the basic steps of the Cha Cha dance. This is a very popular Latin American ballroom dance. The Cha Cha is believed to have originated in Cuba. An dance teacher, Pierre Margolie began teaching the steps in England after returning from a trip to Cuba in 1952. The dance appeared to be the combination of the Danzon and Montuno dances of Cuba, and was similar to a Rumba with extra beats. The Cha Cha is now one of the main dances performed in international dance sport competitions.
