How to dance the most basic form of the Charleston as part of the Lindy hop, and how to avoid the Basil Fawlty version.

It will be interesting to see how many people watch this one. Possibly, if I did a LOT of Lindy videos, they would start to be watched by a different demographic from my norm. Not many axe enthusiasts want to watch on-line dance lessons. Still, it is often said that the standard of free on-line dance lessons is very poor, so here I do my bit to improve matters.
The Lindy hop is a 1930s swing dance, and one of the basic steps people do in it is this version of the Charleston.
This video was shot with the help of Laura Halttunen of The Jazz Factory, Helsinki's primary dance studio for the swing dances.
In case you are curious, my post-end-plate spin is two and a half turns (900 degrees).
I built a sound-baffle around the camera, which blocked out most of the echo from the large room, but blocking it all out was impossible.
Lindybeige: a channel of archaeology, ancient and medieval warfare, rants, swing dance, travelogues, evolution, and whatever else occurs to me to make.
You can now buy the music I use over the end-plates of my videos, which was written as the theme music for The Adventures of Stoke Mandeville, Astronaut and Gentleman: https://lindybeige.bandcamp.com/releases
