When I first started to learn how to partner dance I thought it wasn’t for me. I found it very hard to adjust to being led, where traditionally the male dancer leads his female partner around the floor and he dictates the steps that the pair will do. Having danced my whole life by myself, it felt quite alien to have to hold onto to someone, let know being told what to do! However, over time I have fallen in love with this style and now regularly teach private partner Charleston lessons.
Planning a hen party for your best friend or yourself can be a lot of heard work. Many things starts to crop up such as budget, location and accommodation not to mention what the activities are going to be. Having just organised my own hen party, the most important thing is to find an activity which is inclusive and breaks the ice. There will be groups of girls who have never met each other before so finding an something which gets everyone participating in, and most importantly having a good laugh, is ideal.
This years summer courses will culminate in a film project inspired by Busby Berkeley. This our second year of running a programme of adult dance classes for those of us who are still around in August! Having done a number of big film projects, this summer we thought we would change things by using a new filming technique. to hear the grand plan, watch Fiona’s VLOG!
MyCharleston’s Brighton Fringe event, Ragtime Razzle Dazzle was a great success as we danced and partied through the afternoon. The ambition this year was to shift the emphasis from performance to participation, so we couldn’t be more pleased when we received a review saying, “It was the most glamorous and inclusive dance event at the Spiegeltent”
