Hot Charleston – October and November

Hot Charleston is a great way to learn the Charleston, have fun, burn calories and meet some great people.  There are just three Hot Charleston sessions left in 2016!  The next one is on:

Saturday 22nd October
3:30 – 5:30pm
@ The Dance Studio Leeds

£8 drop in, no booking required *** Comfortable clothes and flat shoes recommended *** No partner required

November dates:
12th November
26th November

The workshop 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!
