Dance - The Charleston

Sorry that there haven't been any new posts, but we at Modern Flapper in the middle of finishing up the semester.
To make up for it I have several video clips of one of my favorite dances- the Charleston. The Charleston was invented in the 1920s andturned into a total craze; it and the Black Bottom were the two most popular dances, and the Charleston eventually influenced the Lindy Hop and the new popular dance, the Balboa. Here and here are some links I found on YouTube; and here's a link to the first pair of dancers, remixed to music by Daft Punk. And for you history buffs, here's a little information on all of these dances.
