About the workshops

While  Charleston has both partnered and solo elements, these workshops will focus on solo (non-partnered) movement.

Workshop 1 - Intro to 1930's Charleston
2pm - 3pm

Pre-requisites for Workshop 1 - none! This class is open to all levels of dancer & no experience is needed.

In this 1-hour workshop, students will learn the basics of this fun, high-energy dance style from the ground up. This class will focus on posture, drills, and basic variations to build a solid foundation.

Spaces left in Workshop 1: 7
as of  8am on 11/13/18

Workshop 2 - Intermediate Charleston
3:30pm - 5:30pm

Pre-requisites for Workshop 2 - students taking the Intermediate workshop must have taken the Intro workshop or be able to already correctly demonstrate basic 30's Charleston.

In this 2-hour workshop, Alyssa will share all the fun and flashy stuff!  Add some historical stylings to your toolbox (like Savoy kicks and steps inspired by tap dancer John Bubbles) and focus on how to create your own variations, to keep your dancing fresh and new.

 Bring a water bottle and be prepared to sweat!
