"Learning to dance could be one of the best things you ever do!"
Modern Jive (also known as Leroc, or Ceroc) is one of the UK’s most popular social partner dances, a simple yet dynamic dance which is easy to learn. There is no fixed footwork involved and no need to bring a partner. Just come along one evening and join in a beginners class, or attend an afternoon workshop and you’ll be dancing & looking cool in no time!
Modern Jive was developed in the 1980’s with the aim of getting more people to dance by creating simple moves without any complex footwork, just stepping on each beat of the music. Initially around 20 beginners moves were constructed and over the years it's developed into the dynamic dance form we enjoy today. it can be enjoyed to a wide range of music from the slower side of blues, up to faster swing tracks, with modern, pop, Latin & RnB genres in between.
It is also an extremely flexible dance derived from Lindy Hop, Salsa, with West Coast Swing elements, so many styles fit naturally into Modern Jive, making it versatile, enjoyable & addictive. You can even go on all weekend events.
