The SSS 2nd Friday lesson for January 12th has us dancing the cha cha, taught by lovely visiting instructor, Sarah Riddle, of The Viscount Dance Studio.
This is not your grandma’s ballroom-style Cha Cha Cha! Sarah teaches a non-ballroom style of Cha Cha as its own unique dance, not just an extension of salsa.
First learn Cha Cha’s unique timing, and how to appreciate and distinguish Cha Cha music from other Latin forms (note – we’ll dance to a lot of Boogaloo, which is the main type of Cha Cha you’ll hear Salsa DJs playing today). Once the foundations are set, the music internalized, and the steps underfoot, Cha Cha can be a limitless and very fulfilling dance to learn!
Doors open at 7:15, lesson begins at 7:30 (with open social dancing following at 9).
Beginners are welcome! No dance experience or partner is necessary. We’ll have a great time learning together. All ages are welcome.
Admission: $10 for the lesson and dance.
