Song: Watermelon Man

The Cha Cha Cha originated in Cuba and was brought to the UK in the 1950’s. The original Cuban and the ballroom cha-cha-cha count is “two, three, cha cha cha” or “two, three, four and one”.“One” being the accentuated beat! The dance does not start on the first beat of a bar, though it can start with a transfer of weight on count one to start the movement.With regard to the hip movement and the Latin style, the weighted leg is almost always straight. The free leg will bend, allowing the hips to naturally settle into the direction of the weighted leg.
