“Master technique: then forget about it and dance naturally.”
How to Dance Cha Cha
Learn Cha Cha (also given the longer name Cha Cha Cha) with these online dance class videos. These can compliment or replace traditional dance lessons.
I recommend doing this after the complete beginner rumba and complete beginner salsa videos. Cha cha naturally builds on the other dances so is much easier to learn aftewards.

Cha Cha Complete Beginner (The back-basic is used to create a simple dance that can be done to a whole song. Get started really quickly. This builds on rumba so should be done after you are happy with the dancing in the rumba complete beginner video. If you want to also do Salsa first that can help as well.)
Beginner Basic Steps
The complete beginner video covered the back basic. A great way to add variety to your dancing is to now add some other basic steps.

Cha Cha Beginner Forward-and-Back Basic (Add this basic step to your dancing. Can feel very dynamic.)
Video to be added: Cha Cha Beginner Side Basic
Cha Cha Beginner Side Basic (Another basic step for your dancing. A different shape that I like to dance gently but can also be done quite aggresively.)

Cha Cha Beginner New Yorkers (More variety for your dancing. This is a large move that may not work on a crowded dance floor. The stepping has a significantly different pattern to it so I suggest doing this once you are getting comfortable with the earlier videos.)
Video to be added: Cha Cha Beginner Criss Cross Basic
Cha Cha Beginner Criss Cross Basic (This is an unusual basic step. I definitely recommend doing this after getting good at the other beginner videos. The leader and follower are doing very different things meaning it can feel odd to begin with.)
Finally, here are some demonstration dances to give you more ideas of how a partner dance can look.
