Hot Charleston – November 2017 and January 2018

Hot Charleston is a great way to learn the Charleston, have fun, burn calories and meet some great people.  The next one is this Saturday!

Saturday 11th November
3:30 – 5:30pm
@ The Dance Studio Leeds

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

Next dates:
25th November
***no classes in December***
6th January
20th January
27th January

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!
