This dance was originally known as the Cha-Cha-Cha. It became popular around 1954. However, the Cha Cha is an offshoot from the Mambo. Which is why it used to be called the triple Mambo. In the slow Mambo tempo, there was a distinct sound in the music that people began dancing to, calling the step the “Triple” Mambo. Eventually, it evolved into a separate dance, known today as the Cha Cha.

When the British dance instructor Pierre Margolie went to Cuba in 1952, he came to the realization that sometimes the Rumba was danced with added beats. This was an innovation that started in 1948 by the musician Enrique Jorrin, which combined two Cuban dances, the ‘Danzon’ and the ‘Montuno’. When Pierre returned to Britain, he taught these steps as Cha Cha.

Characteristics of Cha Cha (taught in our Cha Cha Lessons Toronto)

Cha Cha is danced on the ball of the feet stepping ball flat. Cha Cha is a cheeky dance that emphasizes Cuban motion, which is distinguished by the chassés (cha-cha-cha) which are typically danced during the 4 & 1 counts of the beat. It is a sexy, fun, energetic and playful dance.

The History of Cha Cha Music


Attributed to the Cuban composer Enrique Jorrín, this violinist started his career by playing for the charanga band “Orquesta América.” When he created Cha-cha-cha one could instantly tell that it’s origins were in the Cuban music genre.

According to Enrique Jorrín, he made some danzones that the singers of the orchestra were made to sing short refrains. Funny enough, this style was very successful. At the danzón “Constancia”, he formally introduced some of the montunos and due to this, the audience joined in singing the refrains. Jorrín also told the singers of the orchestra to sing in unison so that the lyrics would be louder and might be heard more crisply which will then achieve a much greater impact with the audience. Needless to say, that by singing this way, it helped to hide the bad singing skills of some of the orchestra.

How it Came About

In 1948, Jorrín then changed a Mexican song by “Guty Cárdenas”, by changing its style. What he did to the song called “Nunca”, was that he composed a separate part for the montuno of danzón; and in 1951 he created a signature cha-cha-cha, “La engañadora”. When Jorrín noticed that a lot of dancers had trouble with the syncopated rhythms, he simplified the musical texture of his pieces. At the “Silver Star Club” the name cha-cha-cha came into being when the dance was coupled to the rhythm of the music. With a lot of people on the dance floor, it became evident that the feet of all the dancers were making a sound as they grazed the floor on three successive beats. To describe it, would be to say it sounded like a Cha-cha-cha sound, thus the name.
