Cha Cha Cha
The Cha-Cha-Cha is a Latin American dance that originated in Cuba. It was discovered by Monsieur Pierre, a dance teacher from London. He brought it back to England around 1952, and it became what is known as ballroom Cha-Cha-Cha. This dance came to the United States in the 1950's. Before being called the Cha-Cha-Cha, this dance was called the Triple Mambo. This dance is now commonly known simply as the Cha-Cha. The music for this dance was originally introduced by the Cuban composer and violinist Enrique Jorrín in 1953. The Cha-Cha-Cha is still a popular ballroom dance and is typically danced to authentic Cuban music, Latin pop, or Latin rock.
The Cha-Cha-Cha is danced second in dance competitions.
The Mambo is the 'father' of the Cha-Cha-Cha.
The dancers start dancing on the second beat of the music.
