Charleston CURRENTLY CLOSED
A thirty-five minute session for just £3. Join on any week.
This works as an exercice session and as a dance class and you can tackle the content at your personal energy and fitness level - we will show you how. We will work on Charleston and some other jazz steps, creating a short sequence each week: over time you will gradually master a wide vocabulary movement. We will also spend time showing you how these steps can be danced with a partner. This class is a great way to develop general dance ability. It can aslo be used to prepare you for Lindy Hop. Combine this class with Lindy Hop Level 1 for just £5.
