Cha Cha 

The Cha Cha Cha has its origins in the religious ritual dances of West Africa and is related to the Mambo and Guajiro. Cha Cha Cha is  a Latin dance that most people like to learn first. The name Cha Cha Cha is a sound imitation of the "shoes" from dancing Cuban women. The Cha Cha Cha was first seen in America and came to Europe almost at the same time with the Mambo the forerunner from the Cha Cha Cha. After the World War II the Mambo was pushed aside by the Cha Cha Cha which became really popular at 1956.

According to its roots the Cha Cha Cha music should be played passion without any seriousness and with staccato allowing the dancers to project an atmosphere of 'naughtiness" to the audience. Recently it was decided to shorten the name to Cha Cha.
