Classic Beginners 1950s Rock & Roll Jive Courses - Class 1

Suitable for complete beginners to partner dancing or to this style of Jive, these courses are ideal for learning the basic moves and concepts of 1950s Rock & Roll Jive in a fun & friendly way. Each week you'll revise and build on the previous week's lesson until you have the confidence to mix it up into your own unique dance.

Courses are run throughout the year, and because we know you can't always make every week of a 6-week run due to other commitments, when you have paid for a course, we'll make sure you get your full 6 weeks lessons by inviting you to just add another lesson at the end during our ‘catch-up’ weeks.

The last 20-30 minutes of the class is free dance time, where you get the chance to practice what you've just learned. Feel free to stay on and watch the main class till 9.30pm then join in the last practice session till 10.00pm - the cost of your class covers the whole evening whether you do just one class or both classes/practice sessions.

We welcome people from Class 2 who would like to come along to Class 1 before their main class - it not only benefits your own dancing, but is very helpful for new beginners to practice with more experienced dancers.

Improvers 1950s Rock & Roll Jive - Class 2

Class 2 adds to your repertoire with new concepts, a bit more technique and lots of extra figures. During class 2 you'll learn how to string your moves together without having to go back to the basic group each time, which figures fit best with faster or slower music, and extra styling.

Class 2 is on a rolling programme throughout the year, and as each move we teach is a standalone figure that can be bolted onto the basic group - not part of a routine - you can come along any time once you've got the basic course under your belt. And we carry on through most of the school holidays, not just in term time.

Feel free to come along early and join in Class 1 - the cost of your class covers the whole evening whether you do just one class or both classes.  Often by going over a figure for a second or third time you’ll have a ‘lightbulb moment’ and a small tweak to how you’ve been dancing a particular move will make a huge difference to how it looks - and how it feels for both you and you partner!
