We are here to help you take your first steps in to partner dancing, but first you are probably wanting to know more about Modern Jive?

Modern Jive is the fusion of many different styles, watching two people moving together on the dancefloor you can see the styles of Ballroom, Latin American, and Rock 'n' Roll all combined together into an awesome display of dance, and even better than that, Modern Jive can performed to many styles of music, including today's top 40!
