Thanks for that review Stuart, tried not to make it too difficult for the improvers. Since the initial choreograhpy we've started doing a 3/4 triple RIGHT instead of the 1/4 left chasse on the end of section 2. Give it a go flows nicely.
Some teachers still having problem getting the music give me an email mike@parkinson 5648.freeserve.co.uk
Thanks to everyone trying my new set of dances!!

Nice pickup on the track good to give new singers a chance. I found that the dance did go well with the track most of the time but I did have to fight the urge to replace some of the starting mambos with Charleston steps – not sure how improvers would cope with the long instrumental sections, but obviously they are, from the previous reviews. Good that you are putting some dances out there. Good luck with your choreography.

Thanks for all your review on the dance. The music is actually a little unknown jazz singer called Alice Francis, and sounds very much like Caro Emerald. Stumbled on this track by accident and some great modern jive on the video on you tube. If you have any problems obtaining the music, please email -firstname.lastname@example.org Once again thanks for your reviews!!

Useful transition dance for beginners moving to improvers. Great charleston beat to a Caro Emerald type sound which is popular at the moment. We should be doing more to encourage these newer choreographers. Well done Mike, will teach it next class.

My Improvers really enjoyed this great little Charleston. The music is catchy and the step combinations fit well to it. Also dances well to other Charleston music if you leave out the restart. Well done Mike - let's have some more!

A smashing little improver Charleston dance, easy step combinations and lovely track of music. Its difficult for unknown choreographers to break through but this dance is definitely worth giving a go.
