Our only Intro Level class for August is American Style Cha Cha Cha.
The ballroom style of dancing the cha-cha-chá comes from studies made by dance teacher Monsieur Pierre. 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 one of the most common and versatile dance styles and a great Latin / Rhythm style to start with as it works great with a variety of music from Ballroom classics to Disco to Carlos Santana! Try these for starters:
Michael Jackson Billie Jean,
Sheryl Crow Soak Up The Sun
John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John Summer Nights
Poncho Sanchez Watermelon Man
Katy Perry Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)
This series is for 4 weeks. This is a beginner series but no new students after the second week unless you have Cha Cha experience (International syle is OK) . This is one dance style for which you must have proper shoes. No street shoes. If you have questions about shoes, look in the Discussions section.
