Cha-cha

The Cha-cha is the name of a dance of Cuban origin.

The sound of the cha-cha is said to be the origin of the name. When Cuban ladies danced, their hells smacked the floor in a cha-cha-cha rhythm. The cha-cha requires very small steps because of its rhythm. The cha-cha part of the rhythm is almost a chasse, or a series of small gliding steps that touch the floor. It is danced to 4/4 time, meaning that there are four beats to a measure. Although the cha-cha uses smaller steps, dancers in competition often elongate their movement slightly to travel across the floor. Alternating between long and short steps remains the key to winning a cha-cha competition.

 

Reggaeton

Reggaeton is a form of predominantly latin urban music. After its mainstream exposure in 2004, it spread to North American, European and Asian audiences. The genre of reggaeton however is most closely associated with Puerto Rico, as this is where the musical style was later popularized and became most famous, and where the vast majority of its current stars originated. Reggaeton lyrics tend to be derived more from hip hop than dancehall.
