The cha-cha-chá, or simply cha-cha in the U.S., is a dance of Cuban origin. It is danced to the music of the same name introduced by Cuban composer and violinist Enrique Jorrin in the early 1950s. This rhythm was developed from the danzón-mambo. The original Cuban and the ballroom cha-cha count is "two, three, chachacha", "four-and-one, two, three" or "one, two, three, chacha".

Join us for SAMBA group class today @ 1:45PM and then @ 7:00PM. See you all at the studio :) Samba is a dance authentic to the African people in Brazil who brought much of the music and dance culture from Africa and infused it into Latin America culture. The samba music rhythm has been danced in Brazil since its inception in the late 16th century. The major action of samba, known as the "samba bounce action," gives the dance its unique look and feel. The samba bounce action is a gentle, rhythmic action felt through the knees and ankles. Samba dancers must strive to make this action appear effortless and carefree. It should never be exaggerated. The bounce action is quite difficult to master and is the foundation of the overall character of the samba.
The Rumba is a very slow, serious, romantic dance that exudes flirtation between the partners - good chemistry makes the movements even more impactful. The dance is fun to watch, as many of its basic dance figures of the dance have a teasing theme in which the lady flirts with and then rejects her male partner, often with apparent sexual aggression. The Rumba spotlights the lady's rhythmic body movements and hip actions resulting in intense - almost steamy - scenes of passion. The Rumba is often referred to as the "grandfather of the Latin dances." Originating in Cuba, it first came to the United States in the early 1920s. The Rumba is the slowest of the five competition Latin and American dances. Join us today, March 8th, @1:45PM and 7:00PM for Rumba group class!!!! :)
