Jive Class Night



Modern Jive is a social and easy to learn dance and accessible to everyone regardless of dance ability.

Modern jive is a fusion dance, with influences from many genres including Lindy Hop, Salsa and Tango and open to personal styling that makes it more exciting and spontaneous.

Beginner and improver lessons are also available, taught in a relaxed and fun manner.

Partners rotate throughout the lesson and so it is not necessary to come with a partner.   The style is accessible to all ages.


Beginner moves are taught on a step by step basis that links to form a routine and start you on the road to defining your dance.  Improvers combine a series of more complex moves to develop intricate routines and styling.

Classes led by

Wendy Thomas-Parkes
