Cha Cha Slide

How about you? Have you heard about the cha cha slide? The phenomena that rocked the world can rock yours too. All you need to know is the basic steps and you’ve got yourself a workout and an enjoyable time with your friends. The first step is to “Take it to the left” (or right— whatever the leader says, follow). You basically step to the left with the left foot and close it by bringing the right foot beside the left foot. Then “Take it back now”, which is taking a step back with the left and the right foot, closing the left foot beside the right. “One hop this time” is a hop in place. “Right (or left) foot let’s stomp”, stomp with the foot with animated hand gestures to make it your own. The next step is to “Cha cha cha” or do a jazz square. A jazz square is simply putting the right foot across the left foot, take a back step with the left foot, take a right side step, then a step forward with the left foot. “Turn it around” is a grapevine step. Turn to the left, but side step with the right foot, criss cross the left over the right, take another side step to the right, then close the left foot beside it. “Clap your hands” means what it says, clap your hands. Next is “Criss Cross”, which is jumping then landing with one foot across another, jumping out again and landing with both feet together. “Slide to the left (or right)” is sweeping to the left side by dragging the right foot beside it. “Reverse, reverse” is doing it to the opposite side.
