Cha Cha, Anyone?

LP: Cha Cha, Anyone?
Artist: Paquitin Lara and His Latin American Orchestra
Song: "Cha Cha Me Baby"
[ listen ]
Artist: Ramon and His Orchestra
Song: "Cuidado Con La Mano"
[ listen ]

Here's a bit of cha-cha-cha from two Latin masters circa 1959—Paquitin Lara, featured on the first side of the record, and Ramon and His Orchestra, featured on side two. My sister and I learned the basic steps of the cha-cha in our dance class at Brigham Young University back in 1991, but even when observing qualified professionals we never saw anyone do the cha-cha while sitting on the floor.
