Hot Charleston is open to absolute beginners and experienced dancers alike, starting from the basic step giving you a few showy moves and a good workout. The workshop has two sections; the first section gives you a short fun routine and the second section focuses on developing the steps you’ve learnt in the first section, introducing a freestyle aspect (but in a structured way). This will give you the confidence to Charleston anywhere!
Here’s a video from a recent Hot Charleston as a recap and as inspiration!
