LeRoc, CerocTM, LeJive, Modern Jive: These are the most common names for a dance that continues to grow in popularity.
It is undoubtedly the easiest partner dance to learn and is taught in a fun and informal atmosphere.
An essential element of a class is the frequent changing of partners. This means you can come with a friend or on your own and you’ll get to dance with lots of different people.
It has grown out of the French style jive which continued across the channel after the 1960s during which partner dancing effectively died out in the UK.
The basic dance is built upon a few basic moves, but it borrows from other dance styles and there are now hundreds of moves to learn.
