" Stacey, Alex & Guest teachers provide a wide range of classes from absolute beginner to masterclass for the experienced dancer"


Modern Jive Classes

Modern Jive is a terrific partner dance based on a fusion of modern dance styles with simple footwork. It is easy to learn, sociable, great value and can be enjoyed to a wide range of music. It’s also a great way to make friends, have fun, keep fit and enjoy an evening out.

Each week, new starters learn to dance with us at Davison’s School, Selborne road in Worthing. There is no need to bring a partner or book in advance, as you will meet, interact and dance with everyone else in the room.

Come along on any Tuesday evening and join in a class or just enjoy some freestyle dancing. See below for our evening schedule and teachers or see our FAQ’s for further details.

You can also fast track your learning and broaden your dance experience on a weekend workshop
