My first time at The Champs Last Sunday I made my first visit to The Watford Colosseum for the annual Ceroc Champs.  During the day I posted updates on my Modern Jive Dancer Facebook Page.  This review is built around those live postings.  In Part 1 I dealt with the day up to the finals.  [...]

More Tea Dances than I had realised

By | May 14th, 2018|Articles, Tea Dances|

It seems that I under-estimated the coverage of Tea Dances A few weeks back, prompted by a visit to Ceroc Beds & Bucks Te Amo, I wrote an article about the growing popularity of Sunday afternoon Tea Dances.  In my article I included a few venues I'd found on UK Jive and Facebook.  It seems [...]

First ever Ceroc Perth Fresh Weekender I'm just back from a fabulous dance fest in Scotland.  My friend Tel and I were invited up to Ceroc Perth's first ever Weekender in The Salutation Hotel in Perth, and what a weekend it was.  Certainly worth the seven hundred mile round trip from our base in The [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – The First-timers Story

By | April 5th, 2018|Articles, Weekenders|

Let's not take these vibrant Ceroc Weekenders for granted In February, as I entered The Thunderball Room on the Friday Night, just after ten o'clock, there was a real buzz about the place.  DJ Tim Sant already had a packed dance floor rockin', and it would stay like this until the early hours.  As I looked [...]

By | March 3rd, 2018|Articles, Weekenders|

Ceroc's Southport Weekender is more than a Dance Fest The dancing at Southport starts at 3:00 pm on Friday afternoon and doesn't really stop until 6:30 Monday morning.  That's over sixty hours of dance time.  I doubt anyone does the full sixty hours, but I bet myself and my Dance Gang friends were on the dance floor, [...]

Paul, don't forget The Boudoir I guarantee you that, when it comes to picking my Top Ten Southport highlights the Thunderball Room is going to dominate.  There'll be references to the intense club like vibe on the floor, and try and stop me using the phrase 'The DJ set the floor on fire'.   There'll be plugs for [...]
