The Magic of Real Latin Cha-Cha Music
Once you become an advance dancer who understands musicality and can use body movements or shines with instruments in a song, you will fall in love with club style cha cha music.
At some point, we all may become biased on whether we like cha-cha or not. I remember when I first started dancing, I first learned ballroom cha-cha, and thats why I ended up saying why I disliked it. But, after learning salsa really well, and actually going to the clubs and listening to the real un-ballroomized cha-cha music (guajira) - its a totally different experience. Once you learn latin style cha cha dancing, on2 timing, everything opens up to a whole new world.
Even for beginners, Cha-Cha can be used to help with your salsa dancing skills. In this episode, I outline a couple of suggestions that should help you use Cha-Cha music to your advantage in becoming a better salsa dancer, and a better dancer that can feel and understand the motions of music.
