Learn to Charleston with Amanda from Brighton Lindyhoppers.
This jazz dance represented independence and freedom for women to dance and express themselves and their lifestyle which was viewed as outrageous by many at the time.
The Charleston was danced by “flappers” in the 1920s who pushed the boundaries placed on women at the time, so the perfect way to celebrate international women’s day.
Amanda continues to teach in the tradition which promotes freedom of expression and enthusiasm rather than technical perfection.
Suitable for those with no dance experience, come and have some fun as you learn some of the main moves and a short routine.
