Joining ‘Mycharleston’ with my wife is one of the best decisions we ever made. The weekly sessions are so much fun and the teaching is really excellent. We all have a great time and we have made lots of new friends. The Charleston is a brilliant dance, vibrant and energetic; the lessons provide a good workout.

FAQ

Can anyone take part in a Beginners course Level 1?

Yes, our courses are open to everyone regardless of age and level. These courses cover all the basic steps and you will learn a vocabulary of classic dance moves that have grown around this dance genre including patterned movement, traveling steps and we will teach a short routine over the course. These classes are open to those who are new to dance and the Charleston. The emphasis is on enjoying a very fun dance. Each term we teach a brand new routine and content.

What is the Level 1.5 Course?

Our Level 1.5 course has been especially designed to keep up with demand for courses in Portsmouth. Anyone is welcome to join 1.5 but the pace will be slightly quicker than a Beginners group and targeted mainly for those who have already done two courses with us and wish to progress.

What is the Improvers Course, Level 2?

Our six week Charleston and Solo Jazz is designed for you to master the more detailed and advanced 1920s Charleston and the solo jazz moves. During the six week course we will be teaching you advanced footwork, Charleston variations and a more in depth look at solo jazz steps as well as the opportunity to master a detailed choreographed routine. This course is open to those who have some dance experience or already have taken numerous Charleston courses with us.

When can I move up to level 1.5 or level 2?

We usually assess each students on a case by case basis however we recommend at least 3 Beginners courses. 

Do I need a partner?

No, our courses focus on Solo Charleston. On some courses we may do some partner work however the majority of the course focuses on solo dancing.

What shall I wear?

We recommend wearing clothes you can dance in. Ideally gym clothes or loose clothing. In terms of shoes we highly recommend shoes with a non-stick sole such as Toms, Greek Dance shoes or jazz trainers.

Tip - If you only have trainers we recommend adding some gaffer tape to help with your swivel.

What is your membership scheme?

Your first course with us is £54 (£9 a session). Once you have joined you automatically become a member so consective courses are reduced to £48 (£8 a session).

What if I can't attend one week?

If you can cannot attend one week, we are happy to transfer you to a different day. For example if you can't make Monday nights at the Marina, why not come along to Tuesdays in Hove instead.

Are course refundable?

Our courses are non-refundable however they are transferable so if you can't make the 6 week course we can transfer you to a different course.

Do I get to perform?

Yes! If you are interested in performing you can get involved in our community events and our film projects we create. Previous performances include: Dance Active, Sports Relief, Bexhill Roaring 20's Festival and various flashmobs. There is no pressure to perform so you can also just enjoy coming to class
