He says simply: "The dance which lster became known as the "Charleston' did not get that name until a tune of that title was applied to it. 1 had done the dance (or years and I was. to the best of my knowledge, the first white male dancer ever to Derform it for an audience. I did this dance to Georgia Brown.' a composition by Ben Bernie. and I first won real recoenition with it at Texas Gui- nan's Elfey Club. It was long sfter-wsrd that the tune called -Charleston' was assoclsted with the type of dance I waa doinc." . Raft was the first to Introduce the dance abroad and created a sensation with It in Pari and- London. In the latter place he won new fame when the Prince of Wales silted to be taught the dance, and In appreciation presented Raft with a costly clgaret lighter. Raft attributes much of his ability to create and execute Intricate dance steps to his early study of negro rhythms, a period In which he Isid up a store of tempo vsria-lions and syncopation Ideas thst he still can draw upon.
