Cha Cha is an energetic rhythm fun dance. Although it shares some of the basic step patterns with Rumba, it also employs many unique step patterns because of its unique musical beat.  The first week will begin with the basics of the dance.  By the third week much more interesting and fun patterns will be introduced.   The first half of each weekly lesson begins with review of any difficulties students are having with previous material as well as some styling to be used in step execution.  Students should plan to attend all classes since missing any two weeks in a row will greatly diminish the likelihood of learning the dance. Students should be prepared to begin each class promptly at 11AM. Please note: students must pre-arrange a partner for this class in order to register and participate. Sign up for this dance class and have some fun!
