Want2Dance: Melton Mowbray

By | January 6th, 2017|Classes and Workshops|

Want to Dance? Wednesday Night and I found myself walking up the stairs to the function room above the British Legion in Melton Mowbray - my first visit to a 'Want2Dance' class night.

DJ Roy Blewitt: Ceroc Passion, Braunstone Civic Centre

By | December 24th, 2016|Classes and Workshops, Modern Jive DJs|

Without music there can be no dancing and it falls to the DJs, alone on the stage, to decide what tracks to play for those of us determined to have a great night out. Its no easy gig for the DJs, for amongst the dancers on the floor are people with their own favourite tracks and a [...]

What is Ceroc?

So what is Ceroc then? Seven years ago a female friend offered to take me to a Ceroc dance class. I'd just given up on Salsa after six weeks (the figure of eight hip thing was beyond me) and I was keen to try something else - something easier. But what was this Ceroc thing? [...]

So excited - I'd been counting the sleeps! Everybody is counting the sleeps until Christmas (well everybody under 10 that is), but I'd been counting the sleeps until Ceroc Passion's Motown & Soul themed class night at The Rolls Royce Pavilion in Derby.

SILC Workshop Colwick, Nottingham

By | November 30th, 2016|Classes and Workshops, SILC and Blues|

Lets get in the mood Here's a piece of music the SILC dance syllabus was developed  for. Will The SILC Dance Style ever get Established?

Ceroc Passion: Parkway Social Club, Peterborough

By | October 6th, 2016|Classes and Workshops, Motown|

Tuesday afternoon and I'm trawling the modern jive websites looking for a class to review later in the evening. A class in Peterborough maybe, but its a near two hour drive - almost a four hour round trip. I'm crazy about dancing - but that crazy? I look at the Ceroc Passion website and the [...]
