Basic Charleston Dance Lesson for Beginners

Slide with Sunday Morning Charleston to advertise our basic beginner Youtube lesson

Have you always wanted to dance the Charleston but weren’t even sure of the basics? On Sunday 28th February we’ll have our next free live-stream class on YouTube and Charleston has been requested.

How long should our Beginner Basic Charleston lesson be?

We’re in the process of planning the Beginner Basic Charleston class for Sunday. If you want to have your say on the potential lesson length vote now on the community page of our Channel.

What are we going to cover?

Depending on how the voting on lesson length goes will dictate how much we get to cover.

We will however be starting with the Charleston Basic step before looking at a couple of variations.

There’ll be some time spent discussing and explaining the twist action, but beginners may wish to come back to that when they’re more confident.

After that we’ll show you how to have fun with a selection of beginner Charleston steps. Including the Twists, Mess Around and Peckin’.

Finally we’ll teach you a simple routine to be able to practice what we’ve covered.

Where can I watch the Basic Charleston video?

The class will be live on our YouTube Channel at 11.30am on Sunday 28th February 2021. You can also watch it below, as well as on-demand 24hrs after it has been broadcast.

What shall I do whilst I’m waiting?
