Cha Cha Rhythm Explained
It is a 4/4 musical structure and the way you count the cha cha is 1,2,3,cha,cha and repeat.
The first 3 beats are full beats and the cha, chas are half beats.
The key is to realize that the full beats are slower and the half beats are faster – That means as a dancer you need to make sure you give the right amount of time to each beat.
