The Charleston

 THE CHARLESTON was discovered in the 1920’s by African Americans, who in earlier days, as slaves looked for ways to entertain themselves and others. Partnered and Solo Charleston is danced to ragtime and hot jazz music.  Charleston has become an essential part of any Swing dancers repertoire.
