What is Modern Jive?
Modern Jive is a fusion of different popular dance forms such as Salsa, Rock 'n' Roll but with complexity removed and loads of fun added to it. Modern Jive is designed for the masses so you can be up and dancing in no time at all.
Do I have to bring a dance partner with me?
No. There is no need to bring a dance partner with you. During the classes everyone is moved around to change partners. Therefore you get to meet and dance with new people and make more friends quickly.
What should I wear?
Wear what you feel is comfortable for you. There are no dress codes, you can wear anything, casual or smart. For shoes avoid trainers as they tend to grip to the dance floor. As you progress through your dancing you can look into proper dancing shoes (which aren't expensive) to keep your feet dancing all night long.
How long does it take to be a good Dancer?
It varies by individuals and on the perception of "what is a good dancer?". It generally takes 8-12 classes for most people to move up from the beginners classes to intermediate classes. You can also attend dance workshops to fast track your dance journey
Do I have to block book? What happens if I miss a week?
No. We run weekly classes so feel free to drop in on any class that you can make it. Our beginner moves are repeated in cycles so if you miss one week you will be able to pick it up in one of the following weeks.
