  chachachá coreography with journalist dancers
by carolinaEspada

OF COURSE!!! WE MUST DO IT!!! Come to Venezuela and be prepared for dancing "salsa", caribbean music, a bunch of different rythms: merengue, guaracha, guaguancó, danzón, danzonete, perico ripiao, bachata, bugalú, etc...

English speaking dancers have a particular problem dancing one of these caribbean rythms: the chachachá.Why? because they call it "Chacha"... and they are missing one step.

It is one two cha cha chá
one two cha cha chá

that is:
one two... one two three
one two... one two three

But then comes an English speaking dancer and tries

one two cha cha
one two one two

WRONG!!! You are missing the third step!!! Come and dance, we venezuelans are great dancers and we will be happy to teach you.

Uno dos... cha-cha-chá!!!
