Irene studies the intricate steps.... Perhaps it is an Irish jig?
Did You Know? - The term jig was probably derived from the French giguer, meaning 'to jump' or the Italian giga. The use of "jig" in Irish dance derives from the Irish jigeánnai, itself borrowed from the Old English giga meaning "old dance". It was known as a dance in 16th-century England, often in 12/8 time, and the term was used for a post-play entertainment featuring dance in early modern England.
During the seventeenth century the dance was adopted in Ireland and Scotland, where it was widely adapted, and the jig is now most often associated with these countries. The jig is second in popularity only to the reel in traditional Irish dance; it is popular but somewhat less common in Scottish country dance music.

The Charleston gets people moving
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.
