Modern Jive


Modern jive is an evolution of partner dancing and incorporates many different dance styles from swing, lindy hop, rock n roll, salsa, west coast swing and many more. Modern jive is danced to any 4-count rhythm, which means that the music options are extremely diverse.

There are no complicated foot patterns in modern jive which makes it super fun and easy to learn. After only 2 sessions you'll be dancing in the clubs like a pro. This introductory course covers the basic of lead and follow and movement. This is fun and very social dance to learn and is great for making new friends.

Check out their Facebook page for video clips of the beginners moves.
