WHAT IS MODERN JIVE? <br>
<a href="http://www.newquayjive.com/images/Dancers_at_Indian_Queens.jpg"></a>Modern Jive is a form of dance that anyone who can WALK can learn to do - even if you have two left feet!
It's a fusion of jive and salsa which has been evolving and increasing in popularity since the early 80's and can be danced at a fast, medium or slow beat, so you can dance it to almost any music you enjoy.
It's a partner dance with a lead and follow style with no complicated footwork so you can pick up a few basic moves in a short time and use it wherever you may go socially.
By the end of your first class, you will discover you've just had a lot of fun, met some very friendly people, and feel quite invigorated.
<br> Do I need to bring a partner? <br>Don't be put off if you don't have anyone to bring along to the class as we encourage everyone to rotate partners as the moves are being taught so you soon get to know the other dancers who will be happy to help you along the way.
What clothes should I wear? <br>Wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable in but you may get quite hot so a cool short sleeved top is recommended. Dance shoes are not essential but if you have good fitting shoes with a smooth sole, it will help you to turn and spin on the dance floor.
<br> <br>Do I have to book in advance? <br>You don't have to book on a course of lessons and you can just turn up on any class night in time for the beginner's lesson. You won't miss out on anything vital if you miss a class as the moves will frequently be repeated.
AFTER A FEW WEEKS, YOU WILL HAVE NOT ONLY LEARNT A NEW SKILL
<br> BUT WILL HAVE DISCOVERED A WHOLE NEW SOCIAL LIFE !
