About Us

Fevah Modern Jive is run by Deb and Matt. We've been involved with Modern Jive since 1995 and with 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.

"Our passion is sharing the joy and benefits of dancing.

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

Most people who walk through our doors have never danced before and we specialise in helping people like you. We make learning fun, enjoyable and achievable - take your time, there's no rush, enjoy the journey.
