Fevah Modern Jive is run by Deb and Matt. We've been involved with Modern Jive since 1995 and with have extensive overseas experience especially in the UK where Modern Jive originated in the 1980's.

We've been running Modern Jive classes here in Christchurch since 2005 and turned a small club into one of the most popular and respected in Australasia. We're passionate about making dance accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

We want you to feel welcome & comfortable and have a great time."

Around 300 people attend our classes each week making us one of the most vibrant dance clubs in New Zealand. As well as classes, we have regular workshops and social events.
