Our 1920s Charleston Dance Classes are our most popular hen party dance class!And why not book our Charleston dancers for a dapper stag party, or a Charleston lesson at your company team building or a 1920s company Christmas party? We’ve also had 40th birthday party groups book us as a novel vintage birthday party ideas, 50th, 21st and even 70th and 80th birthdays book our classes.
We are a moveable feast providing Charleston dance classes in Oxford and Oxfordshire, London, Reading, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds, Henley on Thames, Bath, Bristol, Manchester and the Peak District. We’ve been running our hen party dance classes since 2009! See our locations pages for more information, and our vintage hen packages pages for adding other activities to your dance class at special vintage venues.
Our best-selling hen party Charleston Dance Class:
Learn the famous jazz dance of Roaring Twenties flappers and chaps’!
You’ll learn authentic 1920s dance steps such as the bees knees, the hitchhiker, the Charleston stroll and the mess around, and Charleston leg kicks. Then you’ll learn a fun dance routine that you all dance together – just for fun, or perform it at the wedding if you dare!
Our Charleston dance classes usually last 2 hours, or you can have a 1.5 or 1 hour class. They are suitable for all ages and abilities, and for mixed age groups and mixed or same sex groups! The classes take place at dance studios and halls, or we can come to a hall that you’ve booked.
We do specialise in luxury vintage hen parties at special venues – check out our special vintage venues for a 1920s hen party in Cheltenham and a vintage day out in Oxford or even our favourite luxury country house hen party Reading venue for very special places you can have a dance class and afternoon tea, or combine with our 1920s etiquette class or vintage hair and make up or even live piano playing! Otherwise we can do many of these activities at your home or even small dance classes in homes where there is a big enough space with a wooden floor – we do aim to suit as many budgets as possible.
We are a small independent business, and most of our dance teachers are vintage jazz dancers who are experts in the field and compete in jazz dance competitions or perform in Charleston dance troupes and vintage dance acts. We also have a fantastic actress who teaches the class in role – lots of fun!
We can also make the bride to be or birthday girl centre stage and build in a little solo spot for her to shine, flanked by bridesmaids or best friends! We have done 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th and even an 80th birthday party before, so don’t rule out a dance class for your parents’ or grandparents’ party ideas!
Partnered Charleston Classes:
Fancy something more technical? Why not book a partnered Charleston class with two dance teachers?
We have done these for ballroom dance class groups or dancers wanting to try something a little different to their usual style.
Same sex groups can also have these classes – anyone can lead or follow whatever your gender. You don’t have to have the same number of males or females and men or women can choose either role.
We can do shorter dance classes at evening parties and events or at your vintage wedding (to suit the concentration span of partying guests and offer a short, fun filled taster) along with performances by our dancers. It’s a great way to get the party going and get people on the dance floor! See here for full details
