Caversham Jive on Thursdays
Weekly from 8.00 to 10.00 pm
Weekly on Thursday evenings from 8.00 pm near central Reading at St Andrews Hall, Albert Road, RG4 7PL.
These Jive classes offer 2 levels, catering for absolute beginners and improvers, with the second class being the more stretching one.
Each week starts with a beginners Level 1 class from 8.00 to 9.00 pm.
Level 2 classes for more experienced dancers are from 9.00 to 10.00.
Prices: £8 each week which covers both classes. Pay cash on the night. Look out for introductory offers.
Beginners are most welcome to join us. Although every 4 weeks we recommend a start date you may join us on any week. Each week starts with the very basic content for beginners and revision which means that you can miss weeks and catch-up later.
In Level 2 classes we spend some time adding some intermediate ideas to stretch this who have been attending for a while.
Learn American Jive, often described as Rock ‘n’ Roll dancing. It was super-cool in the age a Elvis, it had a huge revival later in the 20th century and just keeps going strong because it’s such fun. We will teach you how to stay cool when the rhythm is hot and how to be a flash cat when the music is really jumpin'.
We patiently will teach you to enjoy social dancing. There are no exams or tests, just coaching and encouragement in a friendly atmosphere. You will be introduced to the essentials of your chosen dance within four weeks and then you will gradually grow in confidence and competence.
These classes are held at St Andrew's Church Hall, Albert Rd, Caversham, Reading RG4 7PL.
Located at the junction with Harrogate Rd which leads to the A4074 Woodcote Rd to Wallingford.
