Tandem Charleston - A 3 week series at The Dance Space
Tandem Charleston is a part of Lindy Hop, a dance that evolved from Partner Charleston in Harlem in the late 20s and early 30s. Tandem Charleston is well-suited to faster music and offers a simple, fun, and visually impressive way to dance.
In this 3-week series, we'll work on the technique of Tandem Charleston including body positioning, timing, efficiency, and lead/follow technique. From these fundamentals we'll build several basic Tandem Charleston patterns. Styling and energetic variations will also be introduced.
Classes will be two hours long and taught at the beginner level. Some prior experience with Swing dancing and especially Lindy Hop will be helpful.
No partner is required. Further details:
