This July, become a flapper girl and learn to dance the Charlston!
Nikki from Hot Jazz Rag, specialises in authentic jazz dance styles, and is coming along to teach us the moves. We’ll learn scissor kicks, flicks, kicks and the shimmy – all moves that will combine to create a fun, bouncy dance routine.
The Charleston was particularly popular with Flappers, rebellious young women the 1920s known for wearing short dresses, bobbing their hair and listening to jazz music; all things considered scandalous at the time. The Charleston eventually became one of the dances most associated with the Flappers, who would often dance the night away in dance halls and speakeasies.
Please wear comfortable clothes for dancing. No high heels or no non-slip soles such as trainers. A low heel is fine. And Flapper dresses optional!
Where: At our usual home of Welsh Borough Chapel, 90 Southwark Bridge Road, SE1 0EX. Guests very welcome if you would like to come try us out! 7.30-9.30pm, doors open from 7pm. * Guests pay £4 *
Don’t forget we’re still accepting donations on behalf of the Waterloo food bank. If you would like to donate, please bring any of the non-perishable items from this list to the next meeting,
