Learn to Dance the Charleston!

While doing some research today, I came upon a few references to the Charleston. It's one of those Twenties things that everyone who loves the era knows about, but...does anyone really know how to do it up, like Joan Crawford in Our Dancing Daughters?

I didn't think so. To help you out, I've assembled some resources to help you get started.

: A PDF with the footwork outlined
: A very nice basic instructional video
: Another instructional video with a little more fancy moves (including switching the arms across the knees)
: The Charleston for two from era films
: A bit of history, a bit of instruction
: Information on the dance from Wikipedia

Have fun!
