There’s nothing like a good boogie, and at The Collective, we love any opportunity to let loose and dance. That’s why this month, we’re all about the shimmy, shake and swing – tomorrow night at The Collective Old Oak, we’re taking swing dancing lessons with choreographer Nancy Hitzig, co-artistic director of Swing, Sister, Swing. To get you in the swing of things before then, we’ve put together a simple how-to, so you can learn how to swing dance in 5 easy steps.
The Charleston – the basic step
1. Tap forward with the right foot.
2. Step together.
3. Tap back with the left foot.
4. Step together.
5. Repeat, and go faster!
