Cha-Cha-Cha – Flirting Cuban Style

The dance style of Cha-Cha-Cha embodies pure joy of life and is one of the most popular partner dances. It originated in Cuba in the 1950s and is one of the most well-known Cuban dances. The dance has Latin American and African roots. It emerged in the 1950s from basic steps of the Mambo and was further developed through dance. Due to the sound of the feet during the quick change of steps, people believed to hear a sound that sounded like Cha-Cha-Cha. This sound transferred to the name of the dance style. Unusual for a Cuban dance, the Cha-Cha-Cha has a 4/4 beat rhythm. The audience enthusiastically embraced the style. Cha-Cha-Cha spread in the following years in Mexico and the United States. Since the 1960s, Cha-Cha-Cha has also been known in Europe. Back then, it was danced to Latin American music. Nowadays, it is also danced to current chart hits. Cha-Cha-Cha is one of the traditional partner dances, meaning there is a leading dance partner and a following dance partner. This division remains throughout the entire dance.

Dance of Passion
