    The Tandem Charleston is when the couple are lined up one behind the other holding hands in a shadow formation, like on a tandem bicycle.

We will learn ways to get into this position, and ways to exit tandem formation, as well as a few common moves in tandem position. No partner necessary. This is a three week series, but drop-ins are possible with teacher approval, as each class will feature different moves.
