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.

Shim Sham & Tranky Doo Workshops!

By popular demand we’re running Shim Sham and Tranky Doo workshops in the coming couple of months!

First up, learn the absolutely classic routine all Lindy Hoppers should know – The Shim Sham!

Saturday 15th July
3:30 – 5:30pm
The Dance Studio Leeds
£8 drop in
No experience necessary

The Shim Sham is an awesome but simple jazz routine that anyone can learn. This workshop will start right at the beginning, so no previous experience is necessary. The Shim Sham is performed at most events and we’ll make sure to give you the opportunity to practice at our drop in classes and socials.

There’s no need to book in advance, just turn up on the day! Feel free to join the facebook event though.

If you’re unsure what this is all about check out Frankie himself breaking it down:

Then, for more awesome vernacular jazz, there will be a Tranky Doo workshop as follows:

Saturday 5th August
1:00 – 3:00pm
The Dance Studio Leeds
£8 drop in
Some knowledge of jazz steps preferable but not necessary (give it a go if you’ve tried and enjoyed the Shim Sham)!

Here’s the facebook event for you to join.

Have a look at this video clip of Al Minns, Leon James and Pepsi Bethel performing the Tranky Doo from the Spirit Moves documentary to get you inspired!
