Flamboyant, vibrant and playful, the Cha-Cha is a Cuban-born dance and an offshoot of the Mambo. It is one of the most popular of the Latin dances with an easy to understand rhythm. After the basic movement of stepping forward or backward and shifting weight between feet, the Cha-Cha adds a quick set of three steps. This gives the dance its name since many dancers count out these steps as “cha cha cha”.


The Rumba has its roots in Cuba and is also known as the “dance of love.” It is danced to romantic Latin love songs and it is fun and easy to learn. Rumba emphasizes on slow, romantic steps with a focus on hip movements.
