Cha-Cha is one of the sassiest and classiest dances to sweep through the ballroom, Latin & social dance scene and can be learned in just one session. This Cha-Cha video is packed with tons of easy to follow dance instruction & music. Designed for beginners who've never danced Cha-Cha, Shawn & Joanna Trautman deliver a well-rounded fun
lesson on how to Cha-Cha and how to dance it with anyone.

Get ready to move it with Shawn & Joanna as you master the most important steps & moves of the Cha-Cha at a pace that's perfect for beginners. As the latin beat travels from your ears to your feet you and your partner will be moving in no time. Shawn and Joanna share their secrets on how to look your best no matter what during these fun cha-cha lessons.

Cha-Cha 101 is for beginners, it starts with the basics, and it's in a format you won't find anywhere else! It all starts with you seeing & experiencing the dance to get a good feel for the Cha-Cha. From there, the Cha-Cha is broken down into fun & manageable pieces that make it easy to follow along with. You'll soon 'get it' by working through several rhythm & timing drills to ensure even those without rhythm aren't left behind while saying 'cha-cha-cha!' Next, you'll get 'hands-on' as you work your way through the specific Cha-Cha connection points & style tips to ensure you look the part! When you're ready, you'll learn & test your skills with several exciting moves like crossover breaks & chase turns that you can use with anyone & put on the floor immediately. Plus, you'll have a full soundtrack of great Cha-Cha music playing through the entire lesson that doubles as a practice tool each time you use the DVD afterwards - just turn it on and practice your Cha-Cha until you're ready to hit the clubs.

Good for all ages, which is unusual for most DVD instructional videos!
My girl friend and I are taking local dance classes, and I cautiously bought the Shawn Trautman video only for that first class. It was so helpful, that I bought more, and wrapped them up for Christmas, both as a nice gift, and to demonstrate my commitment to continue indefinitely with dance instruction, since she is so very patient with my motorcycle hobby! When my girl friend's daughter saw this Cha Cha video on Christmas day, she latched onto it right away! She had years of professional dance instruction as a child, and yet still appreciates the quality of this product. If it doesn't come back, I'll just have to buy another!

I was spending a fortune on private lessons
"I came across Shawn's cha-cha video on Amazon and read the reviews. Because I had a multitude of questions, I called the directly to the company and spoke directly to Shawn. The conversation was a long one... he answered every one of my questions... and then some! Now I still take private lessons; but I come home and practice with Shawn. My instructor is amazed how fast I'm progressing now. He keeps asking me what I'm doing... I'm not giving him my ace in the hole."

"This is a wonderful series from a truly talented dance professional. Instruction is incredible, quality and content of the DVDs are outstanding.

Extremely easy to follow
"The Shawn Trautman Cha Cha 101 is extremely easy to follow. Shawn teaches the leader's part, and his wife Joanna teaches the followers part. In no time, you will be doing the Cha Cha and loving it! If you have questions, you can ask Shawn on Facebook! Customer Service is outstanding! I paid less for the Cha Cha 101 than I did for 15 minutes of private lessons...and I can keep practicing with the DVD! Such a great value!"

A Fun Dance to Learn thanks to Shawn and Joanna
"This is our third Shawn Trautman 101 Dvd and we loved it. Apparently, all their 101 dvd's have the same organization of: 1. Intro, 2. Rhythm & Timing, 3. Connection and Style, 4. Leading & Following, and 5. a Review. This format works extremely well for my wife and I, and it makes it quite easy to return to particular sections of the dvd for follow-up review and practice. Although it might be elementary for experienced dancers, I found the Rhythm and Timing section particularly helpful in getting me started, and I liked the way Shawn breaks down the beat and then builds it from clapping, to walking, to the basic dance step. Shawn and Joanna again do a wonderful job of explaining the basics together for both the leader and the follower, and they share many helpful tips in both the Connection/Style and Lead/Follow sections of the dvd. They cover several moves beyond the basic step and by the end of the dvd you will have a complete enough group of moves or figures to thoroughly enjoy the Cha Cha and look confident on the dance floor. The Trautmans obviously have a great love for dancing, and they are quite successful in passing that love onto their students."
Shawn's Take

I just finished watching the final release of this cha-cha video and I'm WAY impressed with the overall look, feel, & the lesson itself!

cha-cha videoNot only is the Cha-Cha fun, but it's great exercise!learn-how-to-cha-cha-dance
Not only is this cha-cha video fun, but it's great exercise and it's full of great music. There's really no reason someone shouldn't be completely comfortable with the Cha-Cha after seeing it laid out this way.

We took a very broad view of this dance and gave tons of pointers and tips on how to make it look good and how to 'dance the cha-cha' with anyone, literally. This DVD will even get the guys having fun with this dance and should give them plenty of material to start with and practice to either at home or at the club.

Seriously, if you've ever wanted to learn how to Cha-Cha, this is the time and this is the DVD for you - I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
