What is Cha Cha CHA?
Cha-cha-chá is danced to authentic Cuban music (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuban_music), although in ballroom competitions it is often danced to Latin Pop (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_Pop) or Latin Rock (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_en_espa%C3%B1ol). The music for the international ballroom (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballroom_dance) cha-cha-chá is energetic and with a steady beat. The Cuban cha-cha-chá (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cha-cha-cha_(music)) may involve complex polyrhythms (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyrhythm).
Styles of cha-cha-chá dance may differ in the place of the chasse (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary_of_ballroom_dance_terms#Chasse) in the rhythmical structure. The original Cuban and the ballroom cha-cha count is “two, three, chachacha”, “four-and-one, two, three” or “one, two, three, chacha”. The dance does not start on the first beat of a bar, though it can start with a transfer of weight to the lead’s right.
Nevertheless, many social dancers count “one, two, cha-cha-cha” and may find it difficult to make the adjustment to the correct timing of the dance, “two, three, cha-cha, one”.
