About the dance
Charleston is a famous social jazz dance that was highly popular in the 1920s and kept developing in the 1930s to be partly integrated into other swing-era dances like Lindy Hop, Balboa, Collegiate Shag. Charleston of the 1920s is characterized by its toes-in, heels-out twisting steps, it was performed as a solo, with a partner, or in a group. Charleston of the 1930s is much more kicks-based.
In our program, we integrate some charleston into our lindy hop courses.
