Modern Jive Dance Classes
Mondays at 7.30pm
Come along and Learn a Distinctive Smoother Blend of Slotted Modern Jive!
Two left feet you say? These JiveX classes taught by Andrew are open to both beginners and intermediates. In a one & half hour session of fun and laughter we get to grips with the basics and improver moves of smooth modern Jive... It's great fun dancing to modern popular music as well as old favourites and ideally suited to any age group! JiveX is a distinctive style of modern partner dance that is based on Modern Jive but danced in a smooth slotted contemporary way! It stylishly combines Modern Jive with elements of West Coast Swing, Latin, Blues & Soul. Taught and presented in such a way as to encourage partners to express themselves, both together and individually. Our aim is to provide you with that Xtra something special when you step out onto that dance floor...
Our classes are deliberately small with a maximum 20 people so that we can give individual time to each dancer. Priced at just £8.50 per lesson, it is a no pressure easy going class format where everyone can develop at their own pace under the watchful eye of Andrew & Fiona.
Our fun filled classes operate in the following format...
Doors Open 7.30pm
Warm up - Previous Lesson Review 7.35 - 7.40
JiveX Making Tracks Class 7.40 - 8.10
JiveX Smooth Train Class & Practice 8.20 - 9.00ish
Don't worry about bringing a partner, it is not a fixed partner dance and we are a very friendly welcoming bunch of relaxed social dancers!
Refreshments:- Fully Licensed Bar.
Clothing & Footwear:- It's quite simple! Wear something comfortable and loose fitting that doesn't restrict your movement! With regards to footwear, be sure NOT to wear soles that grip the floor as you will need to be able to slide and spin comfortably without risk of jarring your knees.
In the interest of everybody's safety, we respectfully ask that all of our dancers refrain from wearing Stiletto heels on the dance floor!
Additionally - Dance is considered to be an aerobic activity and therefore dancers participate at their own risk and any injury or loss is entirely their own responsibility. JiveX, its staff or its helpers cannot be held responsible under any circumstances.
