You can find a short version describing competition dance tempo guidelines here:

For the actual rulebook check here:
and download the 2012 Dancesport Rulebook.

Both of these are in measures (bars) per minute. Here is one converted to beats per minute which is what I believe you indicated in your post.

If you can dance cha cha at that tempo and maintain technique good for you!

Guest. Go to Dancesport USA. Page 11 for the correct Tempos. The Cha is not as you wrote 135 maximum .It is 128. I doubt if you could dance a Cha at 135 beats per minute. Some other person mentioned dancing a Cha Cha to a Country and Western Band. I would almost guarantee that they dance a bouncey Cha Cha which is strictly not correct
