One of the most ubiquitous of Latin dance styles, the Cha-Cha developed either from the Cuban danzón of the 1870s or from a slower version of the mambo in New York. By the early '50s, important Cuban large dance orchestras were playing the cha-cha, and as part of a Latin craze, the dance spread like wildfire through American musical culture until almost every populist band needed to add a cha-cha on their LPs.

Whether it's the Salsa, Bachata, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Macarena or Lambada, all of them have two common factors - rhythm and rhyme. Rhythm is defined by distinct beats and rhyme gets a whole lot grooving! Such is the power of Latin dances, that it is the rhythm which the world dances to today! Couple, leg hook, #dance.
