Charleston Dancers, Club Prudhom (Washington DC), c.1920s. The Charleston dance became established (worldwide) during the Jazz Age. The series of steps is thought to have originated with African-Americans living on a small island near Charleston, South Carolina. The Charleston was performed as early as 1903 and made its way into Harlem stage productions by 1913.
