Just watching Aliona saying their Charleston is going to be unlike any other seen on Strictly. It will be how they dance it now & not old school - it's going to be cool. Can those in the know give me an idea of what a modern Charleston is like?

No idea if it was modern... but do you remember Holly & Artem's Charleston?
It was sort of different from what people usually do.

no Holly and Artems as just odd Artem stuff best to show you two videos first is charleston how it is danced now has a swing feel to it



and traditional charleston (as usually done on SCD) these are pro charleston dancers who danced against the strictly pros who did a quickstep in a dance off

I'd forgotten what Holly & Artem's was like Jo - found it on youtube & watched it again. It was a bit strange!!

Thanks Bren - undecided on whether I like the modern style but I think Jay & Aliona could do another jive like show stopper if it's similar to that.

Thanks Bren. I like the Happy Feet one.

Agree Maisie. Think Jay will pull it off whatever the music.
