Solo Jazz 

Drawing from and building on the same origins as Charleston and the Charleston dance itself, the term Jazz Steps (/Vernacular Jazz/Jazz Roots /30’s-40’s Solo Charleston/Authentic Jazz) covers all the steps unique to the 1930’s and 1940’s jazz-era repertoire, like the fall-off-the-log, Suzie-Q, low downs, apple-jacks, boogie-drop, Shorty George, trucking and camel walk. This dance is danced solo, and improvised with basic step variations and musical self-expression to 1930’s and 1940’s style jazz & swing music.
