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.

After enjoying spending lots of time with our young family in lockdown, we have made the decision to streamline our classes and only run the ones that are closer to home in Berkshire namely the Thatcham, Burghfield and Hungerford nights.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time in Trowbridge and Melksham and we would like to thank our amazing, loyal crew for all their help over the years and also thank you to the dancers in these areas who have supported us.
We’ve had great fun with the most friendly, warm people you could wish to meet.  Hope to maybe see you on one of our other dance floors soon Love Kerrin & Luci xx
