Lori’s Cha Cha

A. Stepsheets:

The Google Drive Step sheets album has the same materials in it.

B. Videos:

Note on the “Chase” part, you see 2 different ways of holding the hands.

And some couple just drop hands completely (a 3rd way to do it).


C. The 6 Patterns:

There are 6 normal 8-count Cha Cha patterns (rock step, cha-cha-cha; rock step, cha-cha-cha {1-2, 3&4, 5-6, 7&8}) to this dance.
(Where you see an “(rd)”, means I am using the round dance term.)

BALLROOM: Note when you do this dance, you are also doing about 5 different patterns used in ballroom cha cha (basic is done twice).
