FREE Beginner Cha Cha mini-video course:
Quick introduction to the timing of Cha Cha:
First of all, before you can dance you need to understand how to count the Cha Cha. If you are an absolute beginner you can start counting the Cha Cha with “rock step, triple step, rock step”. Eventually you will want to count it as “1,2,3, Cha Cha” – which takes into account the 3 full beats and 2 half beats in this dance.
Lesson #1: Cha Cha basic step (The basic in place):
This lesson is the first lesson you need to watch if you are just starting out. This step consists of doing the rock step, triple step, and rock step to emphasize the Cha Cha Rhythm.
Lesson #2: Cha Cha side basic:
This is the second basic you need to learn. The side basic is actually the most used basic step. It is similar to the step you learned above, except here you will do the triple step to the side instead of in place. Enjoy.
Lesson #3: Underarm Turn in Cha Cha:
Now you are going to learn how to do the lady’s underarm turn to the right. Using the side basic you just learned, this one should be no problem for the guys. But the ladies have to master the spot turn in order to do this turn. We’ll break everything down.
