The ballroom style of dancing the cha-cha-chá comes from studies made by dance teacher Monsieur Pierre (Pierre Zurcher-Margolle), who partnered Doris Lavelle.
Pierre, then from London, visited Cuba in 1952 to find out how and what Cubans were dancing at the time. He noted that this new dance had a split fourth beat, and to dance it one started on the second beat, not the first. He brought this dance idea to England and eventually created what is now known as ballroom cha-cha-cha.
This is a great Latin / Rhythm style to start with as it works great with a variety of music from Ballroom classics to Carlos Santana!
Class runs the month of February (4 weeks) and there is a cost of $36 payable to Dance On Air the first night.
Please bring clean dry shoes to dance in. Write me with any questions. First timers please come a little early so we have time to meet.
