NOTE 1 - Sections 1 and 2 are practically identical.   Sections 3 & 4 are practically identical.   Thinking of it this way may help you to remember it better!

 

NOTE 2 - the only songs of Mr Cresdee's I'd recommend is Gina G's song "Ti Amo", Although it is a fabulous Samba, it has a nice easy feel to it and is the perfect speed to learn with

 

NOTE 3 - My recommendation because it's so catchy and a better speed for any sort of Cha Cha is Abba's "Head over Heels"
