Mourad Merzouki

"When I practise boxing, it’s exactly the same feeling when I dance. There’s so much similarity – in rhythm, the rapport of the body, in the movement."

Cha Cha Dance Lesson for Beginners

This Latin dance, named Cha-Cha is an amazing and very popular ballroom dance. It was created in Cuba and contains both African and Cuban rhythms. Remember? One-two-three, cha-cha-CHA! That exactly has made it famous.

So, the name appeared in Haiti, where it was the name of a component of a bell. This bell was made from a plat that made a "cha-cha" noise when rubbed. Haitians quickly learned to use the bell element as an instrument to keep time as well. The "cha-cha" was, therefore, probably the first metronome to hit Haiti. The cha-cha was actually created from the mambo, when it toured America. Several audiences complained that the mambo was too fast and jerky for their taste. Orchestras began slowing it down, and the cha-cha was created from this new beat. Therefore, the cha-cha is a mambo, slowed down about three times! Since the mambo was a fusion of jazz and Lain rhythm, the cha-cha retains these qualities. It is a sensual, energetic dance
