You may have heard the whispers and it is true, Australia is holding a registered attempt at the world record for 1920's Charleston Dancing.
The event will launch the 1920s and all the Jazz Festival in the Blue Mountains on Saturday, 4th February 2012 at Leura Mall.
It is definitely something not to be missed and everyone should definitely participate. Remember it is all for fun and all for us Aussies!
There are opportunities to Learn To Dance Charleston in person with one being a workshop scheduled on 21st January 2012 at Penrith RSL from 5:30pm in the Hornesywood Hall on Level 2. Tickets are available prior to or on the day. Enrolment from 5:15pm. $10 per person Charleston Workshop Only and $15pp for Dance Party with Vinnie and the Moonlighters that will commence at 8pm.
Over the days, months and years that we have been dancing Rock n Roll one common statement we receive is "I don't fit in because they are all couples or they are already friends", this usually leads to the question how do I fit in and a discussion whereby the questioner opens up about how they feel lonely, sometimes blaming others for not approaching or being approachable and how the individual feels as though they don't know what to say or don't have the social skills to support fitting in because much deeper they don't have the confidence or esteem in one's self.
