Cha Cha Cha - Three Cha Chas

The Three Cha Chas is a step that, unsurprisingly, contains three consecutive chasses ( Cha Cha Chas ) all traveling in the same direction. The first and 3rd chasses are chasses to the side and danced facing each other, as per a normal chasse in steps such as the Basic Step or Hand to Hand and the 2nd chasse is a lock step danced side by side while facing forwards.

The Three Cha Chas is most easily entered in to from a Hand to Hand and can be danced either to your left or right, depending on which 'break' of the Hand to Hand you start from.

Throughout the Three Cha Chas the ladies and mans footwork mirrors each others.
