Cha Cha is an upbeat and lively partner dance that grew out of the Mambo from Cuba in the 1950’s. It can be danced to Latin music that is faster than Rumba but slower than Salsa or Mambo. Besides Latin songs, there are also a lot of contemporary pop songs that have a Cha Cha beat including songs by Santana, Earth Wind & Fire, Jimmy Buffett and Lady Gaga. There are even Country Western songs with a Cha Cha beat!
As before, no partners or experience are required. We will rotate partners during the classes. Also, any ladies that want to lead or men that want to follow are welcome.
Aside from being fun and a great way to get exercise, a number of studies have shown that dancing on a regular basis may reduce the possibility of cognitive decline and may actually increase mental acuity. It is definitely good for our brains, muscles and spirit!
