Most people who walk through our doors have never danced before. We make learning fun, enjoyable and achievable - take your time, there's no rush, enjoy the journey.
Modern Jive is one of the least intimidating partner dance styles to learn and you'll be amazed what you can accomplish in just one lesson.
"It's fun and good for you!" - is one reason why so many people come to our classes and events. Dancing is good for your health in many ways:
- Physical Health
- Exercise without really noticing - great for fitness, weight loss, cross-training, balance, core strength.
- Social Health
- Be amongst other human beings! There's something special about having a great time with a bunch of other like-minded people.
- Mental Health
- Leave any of the day's stresses at the door and chances are they'll be gone by the end of the night.
- Community Health
- People who engage in a fun activity have a buzz about them that has a positive knock on effect for the rest of the community.
There are plenty of studies that support the benefits of dance. Probably the best evidence comes from our dancers themselves - people just feel so much better for doing it.
