Now a few interesting facts about the Cha-Cha:
The cha-cha is an energetic, rhythmic Latin dance that originated in Cuba in the 1950s. It has continued to gain popularity because it is fast-paced, easy to learn and provides an excellent cardio workout. People of all ages and nationalities enjoy dancing the cha-cha, and it is performed at dance competitions around the world.
The cha-cha originated from another Latin partner dance called the mambo. But whereas the mambo has a one-beat dance step, the cha-cha has a three-beat dance step. In fact, the cha-cha was first called the “triple mambo” because of its characteristic three quick steps. The new dance was eventually called the “cha-cha” because the dancers’ shoes make a “cha cha cha” sound as they took three quick steps across the dance floor.
