Ceroc Surrey: High School, Surbiton

By | November 11th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

This review was originally published in The Quick Steps section of the blog  A very impressive London Ceroc Class Night with Steve Thomas On Wednesday I got a chance to visit the Ceroc Surrey dance class at Surbiton, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the lesson was being run by guest teacher Steve Thomas [...]

Ceroc Surrey: Byfleet Village Hall

By | October 19th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

The third class visit on my London road trip It's been a busy few days.  You see last week I was down in London visiting my daughters, so I'd taken the opportunity to do a bit of a road trip and visit three class nights - so that's three reviews to write. Now, I love [...]

Ceroc London: Shepherds Hall, Westminster Bridge

By | October 17th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

Northern lad travels to The Big City There is a point to this self deprecating statement.  My experience of visiting Ceroc class nights across the country has taught me that the classes are basically the same where ever I go - and so they should be.  Ceroc has, like many successful franchises, built it's reputation [...]

Leroc Surrey: Dorking Halls, Dorking

By | October 15th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

One of my favourite places to Modern Jive Before I write about my visit to the class night at Dorking Halls, I need to mention one of my favourite places to dance - Tylney Hall in Leatherhead.  I often come down to this part of the country to visit one of my daughters and my [...]

Ceroc Southport Splash Weekender – Get Ready for Swingers Hour Class

By | September 17th, 2017|Classes and Workshops, Rock 'n' Roll, Weekenders|

We love Rock 'n' Roll dance music If you love dancing I bet you love Swing and Rock 'n' Roll music. It's the type of music that makes you want to get up and dance. However there's a problem - it's a bit too fast for Ceroc. Some of the best DJs do mix Swing [...]

Danceaholics: Broadbridge Heath, Horsham

By | May 15th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

Dancing is supposed to be fun and it certainly is here I'm often asked by non dancing friends just what Modern Jive is. My answer 'The best fun you'll ever have'. Last week I was visiting my best mate Neil, who lives in Surrey. He'd given up on his local dance class because he didn't like the [...]

Ceroc Heaven: Tapton Hall, Sheffield

By | April 15th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

A New Venue doing very well Ceroc Heaven have a fabulous new class night venue in Sheffield and its doing very well. Not surprising when you see how outstanding the venue is. Tapton Hall is a beautifully maintained Grade 2 Listed Building. It was built by one of Sheffields steel magnates and has been fully [...]

Dance Class: Ceroc v LeRoc

By | March 22nd, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

A chance to compare class formats A couple of weeks ago I was down in Surrey visiting my best mate Neil.  My friend had recently taken up Modern Jive again and was attending a Ceroc Surrey class at the Village Hall in Byfleet on Thursday nights.  Realising this gave me an opportunity to write a review [...]

iDance: Wythall Park, Birmingham

By | February 1st, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

iDance do their bit for Modern Jive Without the network of dance classes, large or small, there would be no Modern Jive scene as we know it. Without new entrants the numbers at Freestyles would fall away. iDance are certainly doing their bit by running four weekly classes in the West Midlands - Wythall (South [...]

Ceroc Passion: Higham Ferrers

By | January 20th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

This felt good the minute I walked in The area around Northampton is a very good for Modern Jive. Freestyles in Northampton itself are always very well attended and Ceroc Passion, the Ceroc franchise in this area, hold one of the largest freestyle events in the calendar at Daventry. I'd been several years ago to a [...]
