[Music] want to learn how to conduct on sir well watch this video alright hello my name is Leon from passion for dancing comm and today I'm going to teach you how to count the ChaCha ready and so it's one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three stayed with me cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one okay that is the way you want to count it okay an alternative way of counting it would be with all numbers it would be one two three four and one two three four and one two three four and one two three yeah so that's another way it's basically the same thing yes so what you want to understand is that in the charts you have three full beats and two half beats okay so the three full beats are the 1 2 3 and then you have the cha-cha those are the half beats yes so it's 1 2 3 and then you have cha-cha one two three cha-cha yep and the chacha is the equipment equivalent of the four and if you count with numbers yeah with numbers would be one two three four and one two three four and yes even if you're counting the four and those you have to know that those are quick steps okay that's why I personally prefer to count one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha and we teach in all our videos and all the charts videos to count this way because it really makes you feel the difference between the full beats and the half beats yeah so whenever you have the cha-cha that means usually you only have very quick steps yet because it's only half of the beat yes so totally makes sense to count one two three cha-cha one two three okay let's try this to music one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one now some people you'll hear counting cha cha cha two three cha cha cha or they'll say something like cha cha cha one two cha cha cha one two yes now this is not recommended to count this way because it doesn't really identify all the full beats and the half beat yes because then if you can't cha cha charge all the child's are the same so it makes it seem like it's three half of B's but that's not true right you have three full beats and only two half beats yes so again not to confuse you the best way to count and then what I recommend is one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three and let me show you some steps that go with it I'm going to show you some basic steps and count it out for you so you can really see what I'm talking about I'm going to do the side basic step of the International style ChaCha right now and count it out for you okay so it's one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one yes and from the back and one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three so you can see right here when I'm doing the cha-cha I'm doing smaller steps and I'm doing them quicker I'm do it cha-cha one so that's a full beat full beat fully it and then I have half half half half one two three cha-cha one two three now you can do a progressive basic or lock step it would be cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three so you have to know that that first two steps of the charge of the log steps are syncopated timing it's the half half so there's a quick step yes so a lot of times you want to accentuate when you have the quick steps and when you have the longer steps or the fuller beat yes it would be something like one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one two three cha-cha one you can really play around with it once you can understand how to count it and how much beat value those steps are taking up you can really make any step your own so hope this helps you and if it did please share it with a friend and also subscribe and like this video
