Aaron: Hi guys. I’m Aaron.

Christina: And I’m Christina.

Erin: And we’re coming at you today from Dance Time Square in New York City. Today we’re going to be talking about the cha-cha chase with a full turn. Today we’re going to start this just like we did our previous chase turn, with our left foot. Starting side. One, two, three, cha-cha, one. Stepping forward on our left foot and turning to our right. Three, and this time gradually turning our cha-cha, cha-cha. One, back to face our partners. Two, three, cha-cha. One, two, three, side, together, side. Back, replace, cha-cha. One.

And one, two, three, cha-cha. One, stepping forward on our left, turning to our right. Two, three, side, together, side. Back, replace, cha-cha. One, forward, turn, cha-cha. One, two, three, cha-cha. One.

Now let’s try that with our partners. Starting by getting into our dance frame, connecting with our partner. And one, two, three, lowering the hand hold, cha-cha. One, as the gentleman initiates, two, three. Turning side, together, side. Facing the lady. Three, cha-cha. One, and one more time, two, three. Side, together, side. Two, three, cha-cha. One, and coming back into close hold. Basic ending one.

That’s how you do the cha-cha chase with a whole turn.
