1920s Dances – Charleston, Black Bottom, Shimmy and more…

Please reference the following videos to get an idea of the dances that were commonly done at Zelli’s, Le Grand Duc, and all over the Montmartre jazz-age club scene.  Bricktop was known for her Charleston and Black Bottom, as was Josephine Baker.  Of course, Josephine would later be best known for her banana dance among others.
