Charles, who will always be remembered for outdancing all of Rydell High with John Travolta, was 63-years-old.
See Cha Cha’s famous dance scene here…
We’ll always remember the sexy star delivering her most famous line from the 1978 flick, when she showed up at a Rydell High dance and won the nationally televised competition with Travolta, aka, T-Bird leader Danny Zuko.
“They call me Cha Cha. Because I’m the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s,” she says.
In 2002, Charles, the ultimate hand-jiver and creator of the danceoff, revisited her character in a VH-1 Where Are They Now? special.
Her family is expected to make a comment soon.
