30s Charleston, Skip up (a.k.a Kick the Dog) and Kick Through

Peter and Liz show the basic Charleston as well as the Skip Up and Kick Through.

The video starts with the basic (Groove Walk) starting with a Touch-Step. Then add the bounce & the rockstep to start the basic. Now add the kick on count “5″ as well as the kick on count “7″ and you have the basic 30s Charleston.

In your 30s Charleston and all your Charleston make sure that you are bouncing all the time keeping the rhythm going through your whole body.

In the Side by Side 30s Charleston basic the leader has his right arm underneath the follower’s left arm.

Make sure that you move forward on counts 3 to 7 when doing the Skip Up. Also leaders make sure that you pick up your follower’s right hand with your left hand before starting the Skip Up.

Kick Through and the Kick Through with Extra Turn.

Basic 30s Charleston and Kick Through

Bobby and Crista show the basic of the Charleston side by side and how to do the Kick Through.

The video starts with basic Charleston (groove walks), with the addition of the kicks to the basic it becomes 30s Charleston.

Leaders: make sure that you start by rock stepping back on your left leg, and finish the basic by stepping down on your right leg on count 8 so that you are ready and able to start again by stepping back on your left leg on count 1.

Followers: start by stepping back on your right leg, and make sure to step down on your left leg on count 8 so that you are ready to start again with your right leg stepping backwards on count 1.

30s Charleston basic side-by-side, Kick-through and hand-to-hand Charleston

Ann and Manu review the 30s Charleston basic and show the Kick-through and the hand-2-hand Charleston.

Leaders, start stepping (“rock stepping”) back on your left foot and followers on your right foot.

Do a small kick back on count 7, and for the leaders step down with your right foot on count 8 so that you are ready to start with your left foot on count 1 again. Followers, for you it’s just the opposite.

A common mistake is to forget to swing the arms. Make sure that when you are stepping back on your left leg your right arm is swinging forward, and that when you are kicking forward with your left leg your right arm is swinging back — the same as you do when you walk.

Leaders rock step away from your partner when you are leading the peel away move (1min09sec in the video).

Hand to Hand

Leaders, to get into hand to hand, when you are kicking in opposition to your follower you need to kick three times on the same leg: one time forward, the other time backwards, and the last time forward again. Alternatively you could do a rock step instead of one kick backwards: it is easier to stay balanced that way.
