Hi5Jive: Mile Oak Community Centre, Tamworth

By | April 3rd, 2018|Freestyle Reviews, Guest Reviews|

My dance friend spreads his wings On Saturday my dance friend Tel, who supplies the blog with lots of his wonderful photographs, decided to spread his wings and try out a new freestyle venue.  A quick look through the listings on UK Jive threw up a new venue.  Tel asked what I thought: I've spotted [...]

Strictly Ceroc: Switch, The Greenway Centre, Bristol

By | March 25th, 2018|Classes and Workshops, Freestyle Reviews|

Day two of a Dance Road Trip Every so often I get to go on a Dance Road Trip with my best friend Neil.  The previous night we were at a LeRoc freestyle in nearby Nailsea, and now come Saturday, we were at Strictly Ceroc's Switch freestyle in Bristol.  There was no particular reason for picking [...]

Nailsea LeRoc, Scotch Horn Leisure Centre, Nailsea

Another Road Trip with my mate Neil Regular readers will know that now and again I go on road trips with my best friend Neil.  It's like a long weekend break with dancing thrown in.  Actually it's the other way round.  I find two freestyles on a consecutive Friday and Saturday and we work the [...]

Strictly Ceroc: Massey Ferguson Social Club, Coventry

By | March 20th, 2018|Freestyle Reviews|

A chance to go somewhere new Every so often I get an opportunity to review a new venue, and so it was a few Fridays ago.  I wanted somewhere within an hour of my Nottingham base, and so I duly went on the UK Jive Website to see what was on.  It's here I found that [...]

Ceroc Glasgow: Woodside Hall, Glasgow

By | March 17th, 2018|Freestyle Reviews|

Do something crazy now and again Life's for Living, yes?  So occasionally you should do something a little crazy right?  Hows this for crazy? I grab a lift with my dance buddy Tel Jenkins, who's working in Scotland next week.  We drive three hundred miles up the M6 to Glasgow.  We check in to our [...]

Ceroc Southport Weekender – Caroline Houlton Set

By | March 2nd, 2018|Freestyle Reviews, Modern Jive DJs, Weekenders|

I was born to dance in The Thunderball Room When the programme for any Ceroc Southport Weekender is published on line, the first thing I look for is the DJ slots over the three night time sessions.  I was born to dance in the Thunderball Room at Southport, and I doubt I'll ever experience a dance [...]

Ceroc Heaven: Kelham Hall, Newark

By | February 7th, 2018|Freestyle Reviews, Modern Jive DJs|

I'm in The Thunderball Room at Southport with DJ Silly Boy! It's Friday night, and the atmosphere out on a packed dance floor in The Thunderball Room is electrifying.  The music is blasting out of the speakers, with the bass turned up to the max, and every note of ZZ Top's Sharp dressed man is resonating [...]

Northern Jive Barnsley: Worsbrough

The Dance Gang hits the road Last weekend there was no dancing in the Nottingham area, so I did what I always do, and went on to the UK Jive Website.  I scrolled down the listings for Saturday, looking for a venue I hadn't been to before.  That's when I spotted The Northern Jive Barnsley freestyle at [...]

LeRoc Surrey: Tylney Hall, Leatherhead

By | January 13th, 2018|Freestyle Reviews|

This is one of the best In September of last year I published a list of my Top 5 Freestyles from the previous twelve months (see link below).  A LeRoc Surrey Freestyle held in February 2017 at Tylney Hall, Leatherhead topped the list.  That night the freestyle ticked just about every box, and it was [...]

Ceroc Surrey: Fairlands Community Centre, Guildford

By | January 11th, 2018|Freestyle Reviews|

Time for another road trip In my first year of writing freestyle reviews (to September 2017) I visited twenty five different freestyle venues.  In the current year since September I've only visited six, and three of those I'd visited in my first year.  Three new venues doesn't give my blog much credibility when there are hundreds [...]
