Tour of Partnered Charleston (All Levels)
October 22, 2016
Description: One of the first partner dances done to early Jazz music in the 1920s, The Charleston took on many forms throughout the Swing Era. This workshop will recapitulate the Charleston’s journey from a face to face closed position dance to some of the more complex and thrilling movements used today. The workshops will be accessable for students who don’t know Charleston but will progress to more challenging material throughout the day.
Requirements for attending: This workshop is designed for all levels of students, Charleston lovers, and people who want to be active and engaged with jazz music! We’ll be walking through our favorite movements of Charleston, including fancy variations on fun social movements for followers and leaders!
