  1. Ever feel like you were born in the 'wrong era'? Would you love some escapism from the stresses of modern life? Fancy learning authentic vintage dances, but hate the idea of dancing with a partner? (or find that you always want to lead?!) The word 'exercise' make you feel queasy, but still want all the benefits of getting fitter and being more active? (if possible without having to wear lycra?!) Been put off dance classes because you're anxious about having 'two left feet', or worry it might feel too intimidating? Whether you want to shake your tailfeather or party like it’s 1929, ‘Charleston a Go-Go!’ has the retro dance craze class for you… Inspired by the flapper girls of the 1920s to the shimmy shaking go-go dancers of the 60s, my upbeat, high energy dance classes guarantee fun, fitness, and the chance to learn some of the most iconic dance moves of all time! Expect the chance to be 'in the moment' and escapism from the stresses of modern life, all the benefits of exercise without having to 'exercise', and an incredible mood, energy and confidence boost – all set to a toe-tapping soundtrack of feel good retro music. Classes currently available in Woodseats, and brand new classes coming to Hillsborough this April. FREE taster sessions available - visit www.charlestonagogo.com or email charlestonagogo@hotmail.com for more details Keep shakin' that thing! Caroline x
