Cha-cha is a Cuban dance style which was also known as the Danzon.

This dance style took flight in the 50s. It is a Latin dance style that showcases counted patterns of footwork and hip movements. We often see it being performed at ballroom dance halls and even at competitions.

It’s indeed a dance that requires complicated movements which we thought only adults could master. However, this particular video shows two youngsters dancing to it, and they did it flawlessly.

The video of their performance went viral with more than 28 million views!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Maria Rosaria and Antonio.

Who would’ve thought that with the countless dance styles that we have today, these two kids chose something that is generations older than them?

As it appeared in the quick interview done by the event’s host, Antonio was then 9 years old, and Maria Rosaria was 7 when the video of their routine was recorded.

Some of you might think that kids of their age wouldn’t do the dance justice, let’s not forget the fact that this video earned tens of millions of views, though.

They are more than just charm, they are without a doubt talented and pretty soon, you’ll know why.

Don’t blink, you don’t want to miss a single second of their performance.

Just seconds after they start busting their moves out on the dance floor, the huge crowd behind them showers them with some loud cheers.

They all came to see an entertaining number and that’s exactly what they’re about to see from these dancers.

Cha-cha comes with all it’s complicated steps, and our young duo here is nailing every bit of it!

Those flicks and turns, here and there, Antonio and Maria Rosaria know exactly what they are doing. They are bringing so much passion to the art and it shows not only in their movements but also on their faces.

They are undeniably fantastic and it’s obvious with every transition that they do in their routine.

Though we are not sure if they have been partners for quite a while before the competition, there’s no denying they make quite a fearsome duo in a dance competition.

The person behind their choreography must’ve been so proud of them.

Learning how to dance is no joke, and for two young kids to learn all the complexities of Cha-cha, it must’ve drained a lot of their young energies. That’s on top of the countless rehearsals and all the time they need to spend just to master the art.

Maria Rosaria and Antonio possess incredible dedication and passion for doing what they love and this is a great start for performers of their age.

Talk about timing, precision, and power?

These young performers have it all! All the hard work has finally paid off, they are dancing in unison with the groovy music.

Probably the best part of their routine is they are both wearing wide and genuine smiles as they bounce throughout the song.

We found out from a Facebook page named Antonio & Maria Rosaria that they are still dancing together. It appears that they’ve joined many other dance competitions as partners.

In fact, they have also been featured in Little Big Shots 2 USA and in Little Big Stars Germany. It just goes to prove that Maria Rosaria and Antonio are world-class performers!
