The Charleston Stroll was originally choreographed by world renowned Lindy Hopper Sing Lim at the height of the swing resurgence in America.
The choreography is arranged to match the song “Put a Lid on it” by The Squirrel Nut Zippers. This line dance is a 16 bar (4 phrase) stroll that turns ¼ to the left after the patterns have been completed. It combines classic Charleston steps that is a throw back to the roaring 20s.
