The Bee's Knees

Dance: Charleston lessons at Claridge’s

Charleston classes and cocktails at Claridge’s? Hell yes, sign us up: the very idea of shimmying in art deco splendour makes us want to dance. And with Baz Lurhman’s remake of The Great Gatsby opening soon, now’s the time to dress up and get your shake on in be-sequinned, drop-waisted, feather-headbanded glory. The classes may not be cheap, but they really do sound like fun, with those who sign up being taught the scare crow, bee’s knees, ha cha na and the bunny hop by nu-flapper dance troupe The Bee’s Knees. Welcome alcoholic refreshment comes in the form of the “Flapper”. Chin chin.
