Unfortunately, there are no magical methods or shortcuts to learn to dance. However, dance classes make a good starting point. Still undecided then try attending the free Workshop held at the beginning of the class more information on the free workshop can be found here.
The classical Cha-Cha is derived from a blend of several Latin dances with a touch of American Swing. However, because classical Cha-Cha steps can be difficult to perform even for seasoned dancers, the classes will teach the Honkytonk Cha-Cha. It’s a softened version of the classical steps so that you won’t dislocate a hip trying to mimic the movements of the professionals. Instruction will focus on building a repertoire of basic sequences that work with the Cha-Cha rhythm that is incorporated into a large percentage of American music including big band to country to rock to pop to hip hop. Therefore, rather you’re out on the town or at a social event, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to dance the Cha-Cha.
