When it comes to ballroom dancing, everyone starts with the cha-cha or the cha-cha-cha. This is a dance style that features fun and sultry movements. In the United States, this dance became popular in the 1950s.
“Cha Cha originated in Cuba and evolved from a slow version of Mambo called ‘Triple Mambo’ or Mambo with guiro rhythm. This musical rhythm inspired dancers to dance a hip syncopation to the forward and back breaks of a mambo which later evolved to a triple step.”
Mastering cha-cha requires passion and a love for the art of dancing.
With the availability of dance instructors and dance classes, even in these modern times, this dance still continues. And the present generation is learning this particular dance style, and they are loving ballroom dancing as a whole. This helps to keep the dance alive and preserve it. In various social gatherings and ballroom halls, cha-cha is still popular.
Discipline is the primary key to learn this dance. But, a pair of tiny tots will show us that the love for dancing knows no age. And it’s even not early to start swaying the hips and groove to cha-cha even if this dance is decades ahead of them.
The charming dancing pair, Daniela Avanzini and Yasha Jeltuhin, shows us the basics of cha-cha-cha.
In this video, Daniela is only four years old, and Yasha is five. But as you can see, they can already mesmerize others with their ballroom dancing skills. And they are not even intimidated by the adult dancers on the floor. They know they are there to showcase their talent and wow the crowd as they perform in the Atlanta Open Dance Spectacular in 2009.
While many of the kids their age are happily playing with toys and doing what kids usually do, these two tots are already making the dance floor their playground, and they are enjoying it. Despite their small sizes, they have become huge for gaining instant fans with their viral video that gained more than 11 million views since it was shared online.
The charming pair moves to a popular song in the 90s entitled “Smooth,” collaboration of Santana and Rob Thomas, the vocalist of Matchbox Twenty.
These kids got the moves.
These tiny kids look so adorable. Who doesn’t agree to this? Their cute moves are on point despite showing us the basics of cha-cha. At their very young age, they totally look impressive for being able to pull off their routine.
Thanks to their dance teacher.
Even if Yasha and Daniela are surrounded by grown-ups on the dance floor, they didn’t shy away. They seem to be enjoying their number and doing their best to make their dance teacher and choreographer proud. She is Ana Llorente, a World Mambo Champion, Canadian American Rhythm Champion, and an Argentine Tango World finalist.

Dancing on America’s Got Talent stage
After their video has gone viral, the young pair takes their chance in Season 8 of America’s Got Talent. They took their dancing to the next level by being samba dancers.
They perform a mix of jive and samba routine to “Shake Señora” by Pitbull during the audition. The crowd loves them because of their lively dance and their high energy.
Most of all, they have made the judges so delighted that they get a “YES” from them, making the pair move forward to the Vegas Round. However, they eventually got eliminated.
