Charleston Summer Series 2024

Charleston Summer Series – 2024

Charleston is a big part of Lindy Hop and Jazz dancing in general. So let’s take time before the summer to explore Charleston couple dancing 🙂

As last summer, we offer 3 series for 3 different levels! 3 nights per series, 6 hours in total per series. Take one class, one series, two series or – if you’re up for a very big challenge – take them all! We will finish the Charleston craziness with a special intensive for the Advanced+. 

We will build our Charleston skills from a beginner level to an advanced level. Classes are based on the ELEF approach: everybody leads, everybody follows.

Please read the level descriptions carefully and choose the right level for you. Many of you might have followed our Summer 2023 Charleston series: take this opportunity to repeat some classes, to deepen your knowledge and to move to the next level of Charleston. Our classes are built in a similar manner as last year, but we promise to diversify the content of the intermediate and advanced series compared to last year and we bet you will enjoy them as much! 


Course description

Beginner series

You have never learned the Charleston. You might have taken Lindy Hop classes, or not. This series is open to absolute beginners and we take it easy from scratch!

In this series, you will have the following three classes:

  1. Charleston basics: we will work on Charleston kicks and learn the couple Charleston basics. We will approach basic figures (such as basic Charleston and skip ups).
  2. Charleston 6 counts: in this class, we will approach a different footwork pattern that will allow us to dance the Charleston in open position and to add moves such as the tuck turn or the pass by.
  3. Hand to hand Charleston: as by now we are familiar with the basics, we can approach more complex figures to spice up your Charleston!


Intermediate series

You have taken the beginner series or you have already done some Charleston. You are familiar and at ease with the basic 6 and 8 count Charleston, as well as hand to hand Charleston, in both roles as a leader and a follower. You can dance these moves comfortably to mid tempo.

In this series, you will have the following three classes:

  1. Airplane: learn and/or improve your airplane Charleston. Fun entrances and exits are on the menu! 
  2. Tandem Charleston: learn and/or improve your tandem Charleston. Get in, enjoy the tandem and get out of it 🙂 
  3. Surprise content: let’s learn some variations of Charleston basics!

Should you have taken our 2023 Summer Charleston Intermediate Series, no worries! Taking this series again will offer you a great opportunity both to review fancy and important figures of Charleston but also to learn some new twists to these figures!


Advanced series

You have taken the intermediate series and you are familiar with all the moves and patterns described in the beginner and intermediate series above. You can dance them comfortably to mid- to fast tempo songs, both as a leader and as a follower.

In this series, you will have three classes with surprise content and a little choreography 🤩 We will diversify the content compared to last summer’s advanced series and we hope to see many familiar faces in this series again this year!


Advanced+ Intensive Training

You have completed our advanced series, maybe already twice (!). You are at ease with your Charleston to speedy tempo, both as a leader and as a follower. And you are up for a challenge. We will spend an intensive 4 hours on intricate variations, complex moves and challenging combos. Be prepared to sweat!



Our inspirational local teacher team will lead the Charleston Summer Series 2024! Meet your sparkling teacher trio: our new teacher Roberta, Eda and Freya.

Did you know that all our local teachers are non professionals? 😲 Their passion for Swing inspires them to train and to work hard, to prepare your weekly courses by gathering material, breaking it down for you to learn it and choosing fine tunes for you. Their wish to share their joy of dancing takes them to commit to spending their weekly evenings with you, after their day time jobs. 👏❤️

The Advanced+ Intensive will take place on Sunday, 7th of July from 13h30 to 18h00 (including a 30-minute-break).
