We are now half way through Strictly Come Dancing 2019 and we have now seen 7 Charlestons on the show with only 4 couples left who have yet to perform one. As the standard builds, let’s looks back at the Highs and Lows of the Charlestons and who has the highest scoring routine so far.
After last week’s shock exit, and Will Bayley’s departure due to injury, we saw the nine remaining couples take to the dance floor on Saturday night. TV presenter Mike Bushell and his dancer partner Katya Jones performed the Charleston to Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines by Ron Goodwin Orchestra.
Thank you to everyone who attended The I Charleston Brighton Speakeasy which kicked started the opening weekend of Brighton Fringe at the Spiegeltent. We're chuffed that we raised over £750 for Whoopsadaisy, Sussex based Charity helping children with cerebral palsy, through the Strictly Come Dance-style Charleston Competition.

In partnership with The Hilton Brighton Metropole, I Charleston Brighton trained three members of staff from the hotel over the past month in preparation of the event. The 3 women, Elizabeth, Agne and Agata were paired with a dancer from Savoy Kicks and braved the dance floor to compete to win votes from the audience to raise money as well as setting up their own JustGiving page
Agata was crowned the 2017 winner. You can see all three full routines here.
The three-hour immersive Charleston dance afternoon included also comparing from Dawn Gracie as well as workshops and performances by Savoy Kicks accompanied by live music from The Soultastics and DJ Basschimp along with the Mighty Dance-off!
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this event including all of our sponsors and we can't wait to return next year.
