This Swing dance has its roots back in the 20's and most other Swing/Jive forms are derivatives from this original Jive dance.Its a fabulous dance and with its revival in the UK and around the rest of the world its the dance that everyone wants to learn.We currently run two different levels of classes, beginner/improver and intermediate and cost £4.
In the beginners/improver class you will be learning the core moves (Lindy turn, circle, swing out, Charleston and others)
showing you how to link them together to build up your repertoire.
Intermediates we assume have a good understanding of the basics including lead and follow and are looking for a
bit more of a challenge with more complicated moves to add to the basics
What is Modern Jive
One of the many derivatives from the original Swing Jive (Lindy hop) the footwork is fairly simple, so even with two left feet you should have no problem, danced to a variety of music and so appeals to all tastes.
We currently run two levels of classes, beginners/improver and intermediate and cost £4.
In the beginners/improver's class you will be learning the core moves showing you how to link them together,
and so building your repertoire each week.
The Intermediates class we still carry on introducing new moves or variations on the old ones, as well as including moves you learned from the very beginning.
