Modern Jive Vancouver is cancelling events for the foreseeable future to help with social distancing during the Covid-19 outbreak. We will re-evaluate when it is safe to return to classes.

Modern Jive Vancouver encourages personal responsibility and is not liable for events organized by third parties. Please take the pandemic seriously: mask up, sanitize your hands, don't switch partners, and whatever you do: do NOT come to events if you feel sick, have any symptoms, or have been exposed to anyone with symptoms of Covid-19.

Learn to partner dance in a welcoming environment in just one easy lesson. From total beginners to total experts, all are welcome, no partner necessary.

Modern Jive is a collection of simple dance moves you can learn and look great with. From an easy foundation you can keep adding more complex moves.

Every Thursday, 7:30pm - 10pm
Cambrian Welsh Hall
215 East 17th St. (just off Main St.)
Vancouver, BC

Each night starts with a beginner lesson of three moves that repeat so you can get started right away. After that we have freestyle dancing, with taxi dancers to help if you are new. After freestyle we have an intermediate class for students who have been coming for awhile (6 weeks or so) and a separate review session to go over the beginner lesson and help really lock it in. Then we have another freestyle dance.

No partner required. During the lessons we rotate partners frequently so you get to dance with a range of skill levels and meet everyone. During freestyle you should try to dance with as many different partners as possible to reinforce the moves you've learned.

Modern Jive is great exercise, fun dancing, and very social. Come out and get your groove going!
