I've been asked lately to "Which Latin Dances I liked most?
(Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso or Jive) Here's what I have to say.
I consider these 5 dances as "Dances of Love" or should I say - It's like a relationship. Here are reasons why…
Relationships always start with a:
Samba - Where the woman is undecided, man chases the woman asking the word they've been wanting to hear. The magic word of "Yes". It is evident in every following and chasing actions during the dance.
Chacha - Where a Woman is undecided if she can say "Yes" or "No". Notice the forward and backward movement made by couples doing a basic step.
In some cases, Cha Cha is danced first. Like in a relationship - asking yourself “Should I go for it, or not?”
Then Samba when you join hands and realize you're showing the world you love each other. It is evident in a parade type of presentations where you roam-around on a counter-clockwise movement.
