Add the excitement of Charleston into your swing!

This six week class will take you from the basics of Charleston to a large variety of moves and variations! It will encompass 20’s style partner Charleston, Side-by-Side Charleston, Front/Back Charleston, and Savoy Kicks. It will show you how to integrate Charleston seamlessly into your dancing no matter what style of swing you dance (Lindy Hop, East Coast, Jitterbug, etc.). This is sure to open up a whole new world in your dancing! Each class will build upon information from the previous class to continuously further your knowledge week by week. Classes will be an hour long followed by a half hour of practice, questions, and individual help. This is for dancers of all levels looking to add Charleston into their swing. No partner needed; individuals and couples welcome! Class highlights:

  • Step by step, week by week instruction to make learning easy
  • One hour of instruction per class plus a half hour of help/question time
  • Learn the rhythm and flow of Charleston
  • Learn solid lead/follow principals
  • Integrate into any style of swing

  • Class goal is to get you comfortable on the dance floor with Charleston!

Quotes and Comments

“I wanted to send a little note expressing my appreciation for the amazing job you did teaching me how to dance. I went to all the events for ORLX this past weekend and had some wonderful compliments about my dancing. The biggest one, that topped them all was when a lead said to me, "...your style of dancing is so authentic. It is how the old timers would say they used to dance." Thank you, thank you, thank you...for keeping true to the origin of the dance and passing that on to your students without corruption. It made me extra proud to say who my instructors were. Another lead I danced with was from JAX and attended your workshop there and after I told him who I learned from he said, "oh, yes of course! you are so lucky to have them in Orlando." I just beamed and agreed. What more can one say...keep up the good work seems trite, but it is heartfelt!”

“I wanted to compliment you guys on your dedication and skills as instructors. ... on Sunday I did have a break while waiting for Dawn and watched how each of you were instructing and I was impressed. Your love of the dance and dedication is obvious. ... For my own thanks, at every event I've gone to and danced Shag, Balboa, Lindy Hop (and the occassional Charleston) with others from around the world and I've always been thankful for what you guys taught. Most convincing (and testimony to your teaching) were the first times I travelled out of Florida and I danced with skilled follows from far away, and I was like - this stuff really does work all around the world!”
