6. Three Cha Chas
The Three Cha Chas is a series of three consecutive forward or backward lock steps, danced to the counts of 4&1, 2&3, 4&1. They come in two varieties: Those danced in open facing position, and those danced in side by side position.
6a. Three Cha Chas Forward
Three Cha Chas danced in closed or open facing position can be taken forward or backward. When the man dances forward, the lady dances backward, and vice versa. Three Cha Chas Forward begin with a RF forward lock, typically following a RF back break on counts 2,3.
6b. Three Cha Chas Back
