  • Aaron: Hi guys, I'm Aaron.

  • Christina: And I'm Christina.

  • Aaron: Coming at you today from Dance Times Square here in New York City. Today, we're

  • talking about the four elements of the cha-cha basic. Our first element is what we call walking

  • steps. Forward and backward. Forward, forward, forward, just as simple as that, and replacing

  • back where we came from. And walk, walk, walk and back, back, back. Just as easy as walking

  • down the street.

  • Now with our cha-cha we're going to be talking about a little bit of a different kind of

  • quality of action, this being a dance that's come over from Cuba in the late 1940's. We're

  • going to add a little bit of a Cuban action to this and place more emphasis, on putting

  • our weight on the balls of our feet. So we're going to dance this forward a little bit more.

  • One, two, three and back again, one, two, three.

  • Now our second element of the cha-cha basic is going to be a side step. We're going to

  • start in this dance with our left foot and we're going to start side, together, side,

  • together, side. And just the same back in the direction we were coming from, to our

  • right. Side, together, side, together, side. Again, with a little bit of that Cuban action,

  • as well. Side, together, side, together. Really digging down and back where we came from,

  • to our right. Again, side, together, side, together, side.

  • Christina: And the last element we're going to talk about is the rock step. You take your

  • left foot and you're just going to place it behind you. You're going to step back and

  • put your weight back on your right foot. So weight on the left foot, weight on the right

  • foot, and again, we're going to add that Cuban hip motion in. You're going to step back and

  • replace forward, back, replace, back, replace.

  • The trick to this move is, I'll show you from the side. You want to keep the movement underneath

  • your body, so you don't want to think of stepping back and forward. You want to keep it very

  • small. It's just going to be right underneath your body, back and forward, back and forward.

  • Great.

  • Aaron: Okay, guys. So just to recap, the four elements of the cha-cha basic were; walking

  • steps, forward, backward, sidesteps and the fourth element, the rock step. Now we're going

  • to take those, and put those together, and make up our cha-cha basic. Just like so, side,

  • rock, step, side, together, side, rock, step, side together side, rock, step. Now forward

  • and backward with the walking steps,cha-cha-cha, rock, step, cha-cha-cha, rock, step and side,

  • together, side.

  • Five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two.

  • Cha-cha, one, two, three, forward, two, three, cha-cha, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two,

  • three, cha-cha, one, two, three, side together, side.

Aaron: Hi guys, I'm Aaron.
