This cha cha video is not for the beginner. You will need to be familiar with cha cha timing, and with figures such as crossover breaks, spot turns, and cross body leads before starting this video. (There are other Cha Cha videos more appropriate to the beginner—we recommend our own Volume 1.) Leadable cha cha figures for social dancing are hard to find and this tape contains a boatload of "lead and follow" patterns that you can use in social dancing. This video also contains an entire cha cha dance routine broken down into segments.
Starts with a full song demo dance
