The Windshield Wiper from tandem

Daniel and Gabriella show a move called the Windshield Wiper from tandem.

- This Video Is Temporarily Unavailable –

In this tandem Charleston variation, the leader leads the follow in a half-turn on count 3 and 4. Both the leader and the follower kick to the side on count 5 but then return to a basic tandem position on count 7.

Followers make sure that your arms are relaxed in the tandem so that you don’t block the leader from leading this move.

Chase Charleston choreography

Kenny and Jesse show the Chase Charleston choreography.

This is the Chase Charleston step. It can be done in various ways. For example either with the leader and follower facing the same direction or facing each other.

By the way, this is not a socially leadable figure, so on the dance floor you should do it with people you have practiced the sequence with.

NOTE: These moves are also known as the “Downs” Break.

Here is a video with examples of dancers performing The Chase. ILHC 2011 – The Chase

The Chase into Hand to Hand Charleston

Mike and Tina show some 30s Charleston variations.

The moves in this video are: the Chase into Tandem – but not actually into Tandem, rather into hand 2 hand Charleston instead. Also a hand 2 hand variation.

A small piece of advice: when doing 30s Charleston variations, make sure to keep the bounce (pulse) on every beat.

30s Charleston and Hand to Hand Charleston

We introduced 30s Charleston in the first lesson, and we think it’s good to review it again after you have been through the other moves.

Simon and Natasya show 30s Charleston, Kick-Through Charleston and hand-2-hand Charleston.

In this video you will find the Kick-Through Charleston and the hand 2 hand Charleston.

While practicing all the steps in the video, make sure that you are always bouncing on every beat. Think of it like skipping rope: there is a mini jump (bounce) happening on each count.
