The Charleston is a dance named for the harbor city of Charleston, South Carolina. The rhythm was popularized in mainstream dance music in the United States by a 1923 tune called “The Charleston” by composer/pianist James P. Johnson which originated in the Broadway show Runnin’ Wild and became one of the most popular hits of the decade. Runnin’ Wild ran from October 29, 1923, through June 28, 1924. The peak year for the Charleston as a dance by the public was mid-1926 to 1927. More informations on the Wikipedia Page
