What we know as the Cha Cha comes from dance teacher Pierre Zurcher-Margolle who visited Cuba from London in 1952 to research just what the Cubans were dancing at that time.

He found an intriguing dance that had a split fourth beat and to dance it one started on the second beat not the first!

Of course he brought this dance home to England and later it became known as the ballroom cha-cha-cha!
