The Cha Cha (or cha cha cha) is an energetic dance with Latin roots, having emerged from Cuba in the late 1950s as a slower version of the mambo. Quick-footed-paced and relatively easy to learn, the dance got its name from the sound one’s foot would make during its three steps – cha! Cha! Cha! – and has come to be one of the most recognized and celebrated Latin dance forms in the world.
Join with Juan Walsh Arguedas & Natalia Semendziayeva from Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Red Bank as they teach you the basics live on the Basie Arts Plaza.
(In the event of inclement weather, event will be held inside the Basie Center lobby)
