|Charleston Stroll Choreography
This stroll was choreographed by Sing Lim from Singapore (check out their website on www.swingapore.com). It’s performed to the tune Put A Lid On It by the Squirrel Nut Zippers, and is made up of 4 repetitions of the four steps notated below. Each repetition is performed to a different wall of the room – so make a quarter turn to the left at the end of each chorus. There’s absolutely no introduction in the music, so be ready to start as soon as the music begins!!
