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.
