Cha Cha

Cha Cha

La Cha-cha is a style of dance invented in 1954 by Enrique Jorrin, a Cuban violinist who is part of “La Charanga Orquesta America”. The first musical success is entitled “La Enganadora”.

The cha cha is quite simple to learn. What makes it complicated is its basic step which is quite different from other known Latin dances.
The basic step is divided in this way:

Time 2: The dancer advances his left foot by transferring the weight of his body forward.
Time 3: The dancer forwards the weight backward.
Time 4 and 1: The dancer performed one chased to the left.

Class Instructor 

JD Lokela

Rocked since his early childhood by the Congolese Rumba, he made his first scenes in Hip Hop / funky in Kinshasa (Congo) where he organized the first battles and shows.

Then at Parisian evenings, he discovers the Cuban Salsa and the Bachata. The conviviality and the festive rhythm of these dances naturally lead him to push the doors of the School of Latin and Tropical Dances in Paris to learn the basics.

To deepen his technique and discover other Latin dances, he enrolled at the Salsabor Paris school. He thus perfected himself in Salsa Mambo “on 2” (Palladium), Bachata, Chacha, Merengue, and Kompa. Curiosity and perfectionism even push him to complete his learning by courses of musicality.
