TSS’ iCharleston Atlanta video project:
Our final day of shooting was the 13th of December, where we danced @ MARTA, the first Waffle House, and Krog Street Tunnel.
Atlanta swing dance community is amazing! We have fabulous, passionate, happy dancers, unique events and to top it all off, we get to enjoy all of it in this fantastic city. This is something worth sharing with the world, right?!
What is iCharleston??
iCharleston is an international dance movement to showcase dancers in major cities and their landmarks.
Because we’re over-achievers, we had an original song written by the local Hot Club of Atlanta. We also had a team of local script writers who have written a plot about a little girl who sees a vintage dance movie and tries to get her family to join. Unfortunately, they’re all addicted to staring at their phones and screens, but she gains an imaginary friend (a puppet!) who takes her family on a tour of the city and helps them rediscover dance!
We had a local puppeteer putting together a dope dancing creation, Hot Club of Atlanta wrote an original song, all dancers are local, and the filmmakers/script writers are all Atlanta locals.
Here are the instruction videos for iCharleston choreography made by Kati!

In the end, we will have one amazing dance video with the swing dancers of Atlanta taking over the streets, parks, and most iconic landmarks.
