1-2Touch right heel on right forward diagonal, lift right foot slightly bending right knee

Comic option on count 8 on walls 2, 5, 8: slap right "hip area". (very "flapper"!)

Styling for 17-24: you will definitely want to swing arms to counter-balance the footwork. And you can use "jazz hands" (fingers splayed). The true Charleston has the heel of the weighted foot swiveling, so try that option

3-4Step right forward, keeping knees together raise left heel to left side and slap left heel with left hand
