Move of the week: Learn the Charleston

Learn the classic moves from the Roaring 20s with MyCharleston. Each week we will teach you a signature step in less than 2 mins.

Our move for the week today is the 1920s Charleston with Elena.

The Charleston is the founding move of the the genre and essential to any Charleston Routine.

It is a small step kept underneath us where we tap one leg forward then tap the other one back.

In the tutorial Elena is tapping forward on the right and then bring her weight back to the centre then tapping back on the left.

You could start that with either leg tapping forward first or backwards depending on preference.

Once you have mastered the basic moves have a play with swivelling your feet on each count.

Try the Charleston step to music starting on both your left and right leg.
