Swing dance your way through Jerusalem

A dance group has turned this Mediterranean city into a stage for this famous American dance.

Add another city to the "I Charleston the World" dance craze that took the Internet by storm a few years ago.

The Holy Lindy Land dance group has turned Jerusalem into the backdrop for their version of the Charleston, the popular dance named after Charleston, South Carolina. The swing dance experienced somewhat of a renaissance after the "I Charleston the World" project was launched in 2011.

The video, posted to YouTube, already has had more than 130,000 views.

Meant to celebrate the Charleston, videos have poured in from around the world of dancers turning their cities into stages on which to perform it.

The Holy Lindy Land dance group teaches lessons throughout Israel – in cities like Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa. This video comes as no surprise, considering the success they had with another "I Charleston" video filmed in Tel Aviv in 2012 that has garnered more than 300,000 views to date.
