Squat Charleston

This move can prove to be challenging, but the effort is worth it. Once internalized, squat Charlestons can really fun to do, though they can be exhausting when done for long periods of time.

Jump Charleston

A really cool variation of basic Charleston with many options for flare. It combines 4-count, half-time, and full-time rhythm. Some variations use the triple step rhythm.
