As you know, I am currently working on learning choreography for my practice exam to be a Group Fitness Instructor – in particular, a Zumba instructor. One of the reasons I love Zumba is because of the Latin dancing influence. The music reminds me of the time when I used to dance Latin moves: the cha cha cha, the rhumba, the jive, the samba. I love the music; I love the rhythms; and I love the movements.
Now that I am building my own playlist and class atmosphere, I am influenced by the love of my past. My preference is to choose music with a Latin feel and the choreography I prefer embraces the merangue, the salsa, the cumbia. I do include reggaeton – but not as much as in the Zumba classes that I attend. The latest song I am learning has steps for a cha cha cha. The song is authentic and so are the movements of the following Zumba crew:
I know of a number of people who will enjoy this and I look forward to sharing it with them.
Do you enjoy dancing to the cha cha cha?
