June Progressive Series: Charleston
Taught by Jeremy & Aliceann
Charleston was a dance that came out of Charleston, SC in the early 1920’s (https://youtu.be/
As Lindy Hop was born from Charleston, Charleston evolved with it as well into “Swing Charleston”, which involved larger kicks and traveling. (https://youtu.be/
Follow the event for updates.
Being comfortable with basic swing movement is the only requirement for this series. This is a progressive series.
Series classes meet every Wednesday downstairs at the Laurel Theater from 7-8:15 pm. Classes are $5 a night and include admission to the dance. Cardholders and local students may purchase 4 weeks at once for only $15 (1 week free).
Next month’s series will be Basics Variations with Scott and Aliceann!
