What to Expect From the 3 Week Tandem Charleston Mini-Course

Tandem Charleston is a cool-looking move where the leaders are directly behind their followers doing the Charleston. The leader is still leading their follower through the connection between their hands, which allows for loads of fun variations too!

This mini-course will show you:

  • how to do a suitable Charleston on your own
  • how leaders can lead their followers into the tandem position
  • how to do the tandem once you've arrived in the correct position
  • how to exit safely and integrate back into your normal dancing

Who Can Take Part in the 3 Week Tandem Charleston Mini-Course

This course is open to everybody who books with a partner and dances with them throughout the mini-course.

Although no previous experience is required, this mini-course would suit people who have some previous dance experience. Anybody who has never danced before should head to our Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course first.

Finding The Upper Sports Hall

For classes in the Upper Sports Hall, it is best to park in the top car park to the left as you enter the Leisure Centre entrance from the main road.  Follow the car park to the end, where you will find large main gates into the school grounds.  Go through the double gates and bear right.  The Upper Sports Hall is on your right-hand side (running parallel with the top car park).

Finding The Lower Sports Hall

Once parked, please walk onto the school site via the large double gates to the school slightly down the driveway and on the opposite side to the Leisure Centre. From the entrance gates, follow a U-shaped walk along the main driveway into the school to a central pedestrian square. After reaching the square turn right, go to the end of the square and then turn right again. From the square, you can then follow a pathway straight ahead to the Lower Sports Hall building. Enter the building and the Sports Hall is on the right-hand side.
