Modern Jive is probably one of the most popular partner dances there is, it is easy to learn and a lot of fun to do.  There are several ways in which you can get involved, the quickest is just pop along to one of our regular class nights and join in.

  • No need to book

  • No need to bring a partner

  • Recognised form of exercise

  • Beginners can start on any week

  • No previous experience necessary

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.
