This DVD is fully suitable for the complete beginner. This DVD starts at the very beginning and it explains the basic step, the footwork, the foot positions, how to count the music, and how to achieve "Cuban motion." The DVD also stresses the importance of frame, connection, and timing as essential elements for good lead and follow. It goes on to show all of the most common and familiar cha cha patterns.
This is a great video! It shows the most important and the most leadable cha cha figures. Most of the 27 figures shown are common to American style cha cha, International style cha cha, and country-western style cha cha. These are "foundation" moves that all cha cha dancers must ultimately master in order to advance. This DVD also shows the most common variations on the basic figures. There are many other cha cha DVDs and videos out there, but we're convinced you'll find our Volume 1 to be one of the best values out there.
Note: This cha cha instructional DVD covers more than just the steps below. The DVD begins with an introduction to the cha cha that includes a demonstration. After that, frame, connection, timing, and music structure are discussed.
The DVD includes an index. In addition, all steps are named and introduced by a title.
