About us

Kerrin & Luci

Arriving:-   The doors open between 15 - 30 minutes before the class should you wish to practice the previous weeks moves.  In some of our venues a licensed bar will also be open if you wanted to chill out and have a drink before dancing.

The Beginners Class:-  Here you join in the beginners jive class and learn 3 basic moves.  Modern Jive is so simple to learn we guarantee that you will be able to dance after just your first lesson!

The Freestyle Break:-  The DJ takes over for 30 minutes so you can either practise the moves you have just learnt or just relax and have a drink.

Choice of second class:-  You now have the choice of 2 (or on some nights 3) classes to choose from.  If you are a beginner you can do the beginners lesson again in a smaller group or you can try the intermediate class which is slightly harder.

Social Freestyle:-  Again the DJ takes over for what we call  'Freestyle' which is basically an evening social dance - your chance to practise the moves you have just learnt in a relaxed, fun and safe environment.

Hi everyone we hope you are all keeping well. Obviously we are still closed until further notice so we will let you know as soon as things change.  Stay safe and hope to catch up soon.

With our regular weekly dance classes on hold due to the ongoing social distancing rules we have now taken our classes online..

We have 2 levels
(which are called “tiers” on Patreon) to choose from, there is a beginners to improvers tier suitable for the complete beginner right up to the improver level, plus an intermediate tier.  

With each teir we will be uploading and adding one class a week to your chosen level. The cost is just £10.00 per month making the weekly classes only £2.50 which is cheaper than a coffee in town - in the olden days when we were allowed out!

This is all done via a website called Patreon it’s free to register and you can find us at:-


Hope you enjoy them and thanks you for all your support.
