Dancing cha-cha is a fun and exciting experience. Cha-cha can be danced at any speed and there are plenty of songs at different tempos depending on your mood and skill level. Many salsa night clubs and ballroom dance studios will play cha-cha songs for social dancing, ranging from "classic" songs like "Oye Como Va" by Celia Cruz to more contemporary songs such as "Like a Bomb" by Filly Bee. This playlist is a mix of Spanish and English songs at different speeds that will make you wanna jump up and cha-cha! If you're a beginner dancer, I recommend sticking to slower cha-cha songs while you get a hold of the footwork and patterns. If you're more advanced and have been dancing for a long time like me, you might find yourself getting bored with slow songs and will find yourself gravitating towards faster songs.

Do you know how to dance Cha-cha?
You should not underestimate the importance of dancing at your wedding. Very special moments are built around the first dance between the bride and groom, the dance between father and bride, and even line dances that involve everyone. It is therefore important that you work with your wedding DJ to accommodate many wedding dance styles. The difference between wedding dance styles is vast. Choosing the appropriate style is connected to choosing the right music, and both style and music need to fit the moment. For example, waltzes work very well for spotlight dances while cha cha and two-step styles are suitable for larger groups. Tempo is one of the primary factors that helps distinguish wedding dance styles.
Uptown Funk — Mark Ronson feat. Hip Hop is all about the fast moves and smooth footwork, and the beat of this song will provide many opportunities to show off the latest moves. The Jive dance originated from Swing dancing and is full of fast-paced action. Shut Up and Dance is a perfect fit for the Jive because of the fast tempo and speed.
