Cha Cha Cha Basic Moves – Natural Opening Out Movement, Reverse Top, Underarm Turn Right

LEVEL: Beginner
STYLE: Cha Cha Cha
The lady will have been led slightly to the mans right side to create the necessary space for the Natural Opening Out Movement, a widening of the mans right arm along with the lowering of the left hand at the start. A rotation to the left is needed to lead the Reverse Top which continues to turn left throughout the five steps, it is important to keep the centre of the turn around the mans left foot. Be sure to decelerate in order to maintain good balance before the next figure. The normal hold needs to be more compact and the bodies in contact during the Reverse Top.
