Private Parties & Personal Tuition Please contact us for details Modern Jive evolved in France and appeared in the UK in the early 1980’s. It is a mix of many dance forms including Swing, Lindy Hop, Rock and Roll and Salsa. This elegant and unique dance is taught in a social atmosphere with the emphasis on learning the whole move rather then small amounts of footwork. The glory of this dance is that it can be used in small areas and danced to many types of music. Although this is a partner dance you don’t need to come with a partner. The way lessons are run means that you’ll end up dancing with just about everyone (of the opposite sex!!!) in the room. Partners are changed every few minutes, this ensures that you get to try the moves with plenty of different people and it also means you get to meet everyone. Just turn up in comfortable clothes and while shoes with leather soles are best any shoe that doesn’t stick to the floor is ok WHAT IS MODERN JIVE? What should I wear? I don’t have a partner?
