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!
