JIVE

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'.

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 7.30 to 8.15 pm.

Level 2 classes for more experienced dancers are from 8.15 to to 9.00.

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.
