Make sure your water bottle is full! No kitchen on site.


Modern Jive

Modern Jive is an easy partner dance with no fancy footwork. It’s danced to a wide variety of music, including top 20 hits.

Each class teaches 3 beginner moves that can be mixed and matched together. We like to think that there are no mistakes in Modern Jive, only variations!

Charleston

A positive and jazzy dance style that was popular in the 1920’s, the Charleston can be performed on your own, with a partner, or as a group!

The Charleston includes – you guessed it! – the classic Charleston step, plus other funky moves with equally funky names

Line Dance

A fun synchronised group dance – no partner needed! In Line Dance we learn to get our groove on alongside a song or three with some cool foot work.
