Even in Modern it is unfortunate that we use the word quick for a step. it makes the beginner think of step much faster than it is and it becomes haughty. You might remember a German Professional gave his veiws on this. He said that in a Quickstep class he has success by counting all of the beginners steps as Slow, no quicks at all. I would never count Latin in anything other than 2341. or 1 a 2 in Samba. I dont think even a disciple of slows and quicks would try slows and quicks in the Cha Cha.
