Dancing Gets Underway With Instructions (Page Four)
We are fortunate to have Jan with us here this evening... As a professional dance instructor, she begins teaching the us the Charleston!
Did You Know? - The Charleston is a dance named for the harbor city of Charleston, South Carolina. The rhythm was popularized in mainstream dance music in the United States by a 1923 tune called "The Charleston" by composer/pianist James P. Johnson which originated in the Broadway show Runnin' Wild and became one of the most popular hits of the decade. Runnin' Wild ran from 29 October 1923 through 28 June 1924. The peak year for the Charleston as a dance by the public was mid-1926 to 1927.
