Why not surprise the bride by getting her and the girls up to perform the dance at the wedding reception?
We've all seen the famous flapper girls doing the Charleston, a charismatic and witty dance from the 'roaring 20s' when skirts were getting shorter and prohibition dampened the party spirits across the US.
While we wouldn't necessarily want to live in an era where alcohol was banned, the parties seen in movies like The Great Gatsby really do capture the imagination.
In this fun, jazzy and energetic dance class, you learn all the authentic moves to create your own performance with a complete, professionally choreographed routine. The session will include classic styles such as 'the hitchhiker', 'the shoeshine' and 'grannies knee caps'. This great vintage dance session that will have you smiling throughout, and of course the finished performance will make a great surprise addition for the wedding reception.
The jazz sounds associated with the Charleston are very much back in vogue thanks to singers like Ellie Goulding, Caro Emerald, Diana Krall, Amy Winehouse and even Lady Gaga. You can even add a little fancy dress with fringed flapper dresses, fishnets, feathered headbands, beaded pearls and smouldering red lipstick?
For fans of vintage style, this is a fantastic activity and a great tie-in for any bride-to-be who is planning a vintage theme or style for her big day.
"...She was a brilliant instructor, everyone felt comfortable that they could dance to their own level and we all came away with the biggest smile...."
"...Very friendly and patient instructor. The bottle of bubbly was a real surprise!..."
