Cha Cha Cha Dance Lessons

The Cha Cha Cha, or simply known as the Cha-Cha, originated in Cuba and evolved from a slow version of Mambo called the “Triple Mambo”, including a guiro rhythm. This musical rhythm inspired dancers to dance a hip syncopation to the forward and back breaks of a mambo, which then evolved to a triple step. The Cha-Cha was introduced to the US in 1954, replacing Mambo as the latest dance craze. After its introduction to the US, the traditional violins and flutes were exchanged for big band instruments such as trumpets, trombones, and saxophones.

The Cha-Cha is a lively, fun, cheeky, and playful dance.
