Solo Charleston and Jazz Roots


From the Shorty George to the Bee's Knee's, this fun and energetic course will have you dancing these moves and many more in no time!

We will introduce you to the basic steps and styling, before progressing onto authentic vintage jazz routines. This is a perfect class for solo dancers and groups of friends alike.

This course has been split into 2 5 week courses so that you have the option to learn 2 different routines:

Routine 1

9 Jan – 6 Feb: Shake That Thing

A BelleHoppers choreographed routine that has delighted audiences of all ages.

Routine 2

20 Feb – 20 Mar: The Tranky Doo

The Tranky Doo is an internationally renowned routine that first appeared at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem during the 1940s.

Both routines are suitable for beginners and improvers and you do not have to have any dance experience to join the course, although being able to follow a sequence of moves is beneficial.

Flat, no-grip shoes are advised.
