  • 4-Week Cha Cha Workshop, Tuesday, 3/5-3/27, 9 pm

  • The "Cha Cha Cha" is a lively Latin American dance that originated in Cuba in the 1950s. It is characterized by its syncopated steps, hip movements, and playful, flirtatious style. The dance is typically performed to music with a distinct rhythm and beat, known as the "cha-cha-cha" pattern.

    In a beginner Cha Cha Cha dance class, you'll be introduced to the basic steps, timing, footwork, and styling elements of this Latin American dance. The class will focus on building a strong foundation in Cha Cha Cha technique while also making the experience enjoyable and accessible for beginners.

    Giovanni will provide clear demonstrations and instructions, breaking down each movement to help you understand and execute them correctly. Emphasis will be placed on timing, hip movement, and footwork. Throughout the class, you'll practice these steps individually (no partner required) to develop coordination and partnership skills. The atmosphere will be supportive and encouraging, creating a comfortable environment for beginners to learn and progress in their Cha Cha Cha journey. No prior dance experience required!
